WZZM-TV meteorologist Joe Kopecek said it will become clear and much colder tonight, with temperatures falling to between 5 below and 5 above overnight. Winds will be from the northwest and diminishing to 4-8 mph, so we'll see wind chills of 3 below to 13 below.

The record low for March 13 in Muskegon is 2, set way back in 1912. The record low for March 13 in Grand Rapids is 5, set in 1926.

Thursday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 20s, Kopecek said. Winds will increase from the south-southwest at 12-25 mph. Wind chills will be 11-15.

It will reach the 40s again Friday, but back into the 30s on Saturday, and only in the 20s on Sunday and Monday.

The six- to-10-day outlook for Tuesday, March 18, through Saturday, March 22, calls for below-average temperatures and near-average precipitation. The eight- to-14-day outlook for March 20-26 also calls for below-average temperatures and near-average precipitation.
