Happy Friday, West Michigan! Your weekend is right around the corner, and it's much colder behind today's front. That brought a breezy, soaking rain for shoppers this morning, with only a few spotty showers possible into the afternoon, mainly S of I-94.

The bigger story is how quickly temperatures tumble into the 20s as chilly air arrives behind the boundary. Most spots will be near 40 by 4 o'clock after starting at 60 after midnight. Wow! That means any leftover moisture may mix with a few no-impact flakes. Still, a shot at snow remains slim.

Saturday starts and ends chilly, with temperatures in the upper 20s only recovering to the upper 30s under partly cloudy skies. Sunday features full sunshine and near normal temperatures, in the lower 40s.

Rain returns by the end of the final Monday of November, but it should be light. Showers continue Tuesday, and are poised to mix with snow by sunset.  Light snow persists Tuesday night and Wednesday.  There will be some influence from Lake Michigan; right now accumulations appear to be light.
