Radars here should update automatically. The last of the light rain/sprinkles are moving out. Roads are wet or damp south of a line from Muskegon to Alma.
Here’s some rainfall totals. There was no measurable rain in Muskegon, Kent City or Big Rapids. Temperatures will hold steady in the low-mid 30s. Where it rained, roads may stay damp because relative humidities near 100%. Watch out for patchy fog tonight into Monday AM.
Pretty much all or nothing when it comes to rain this week…we’ll be dry Monday and Tuesday…there’s a chance of rain after midnight Tuesday night. Rain is likely on Wednesday – probably about 1/4″. No rain on Thursday…then a significant storm moves in Friday and Saturday. I think the low pressure system goes northwest/north of our area, giving us mostly rain and not snow. We may see temps. rise to the mid-upper 50s briefly Friday night and there could even be a t-shower in the warm air. The cold air will roar back in on Saturday with a strong west wind and falling temperatures.
