GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — After pretty much all the snow that fell last week melted Monday and Tuesday, more is on the way along the lakeshore the rest of the week.

Heavy rain has caused widespread flooding issues around West Michigan, and rain will only take a minor break before temperatures fall enough to change rain showers to snow Wednesday afternoon.  Most snow accumulations will be light through the afternoon, but there may be an inch or two northwest of Grand Rapids.

As colder air moves in late Wednesday and Wednesday night, lake-effect snow will redevelop and leave two to five inches of new accumulation in some areas by Thursday morning.  That snow will continue and be heavy at times through most of Thursday and Friday.  A particularly heavy and widespread burst is likely to fall Thursday night.
