More snow on the way for West Michigan

Expect more clouds than sunshine this weekend thanks to a strong jet stream passing through the Rockies.

However, a mainly clear sky, with light winds and snow on the ground equals a cold night. Temperatures by day in the single digits to teens below zero, overnight lows in the -20 degree range. Even though it's not a lot of snow, it could still create some slick spots, especially on untreated roadways.

On Monday, we'll catch a brief surge of warmth before arctic air plunges into South-Central KY Monday night.

There will be travel concerns and likely school cancellations come Monday.

Temperatures will warm up about 10 degrees for Sunday before our next snowstorm moves in Monday morning.

Wind chill values will actually get worse through Wednesday and peak at 30 below Thursday Morning. Wednesday's high temperature could hover near minus 10. Wind chill values could be as low as -40 to -50 degrees.

Environment Canada is calling for an overnight low of -15 and a wind chill of -23 Friday night. I think they will be light and should not affect church plans.

Anyone can be affected by extreme cold-related weather conditions, depending on how long one is exposed to cold conditions and exertion levels. Anyone outdoors during the prolonged cold should wear both a hat and gloves to lower the risk of frostbite and hypothermia.
