WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) — To say it’s been an interesting day in West Michigan is a huge understatement.  Some areas are getting heavy snow, while others are seeing sunny skies.

A winter storm warning remains in effect tonight for most of West Michigan. However, along and south of I-94, a winter weather advisory is in effect. The heaviest snow so far has been in parts of Kent, Allegan, and Ottawa Counties, where some areas have received over four inches so far.  At our studios on Grand Rapids’ northeast side, we have about 3.5 inches of snow, and the snow is currently mixing with rain. There have been reports of rain as well in southern Allegan as well as Van Buren Counties. This image shows the latest forecast snow totals by Friday morning. The area in dark blue is where over six inches could fall. The rest of the area will have less than that.

All of West Michigan isn’t a winter wonderland, however. Sunshine was reported within the hour at Marshall and Kalamazoo, where temperatures are close to 40 degrees.
