GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — If recent mild weather and melting snow has you ready for spring to arrive, you’re in for a rude awakening over the next couple of days.

While West Michigan won’t pick up a lot of snow through midweek, breezy and colder conditions are developing that will make it feel more like winter for the next few days.

Scattered snow showers will result in some minor accumulations on grassy surfaces during the daytime Tuesday.  The snow will come in bursts, with one of the biggest bursts likely in the late morning or midday timeframe.

Temperatures will generally stay in the mid 30s for highs both Tuesday and Wednesday.  As a result, road conditions will stay mostly wet during the daytime, with some slushy or icy spots possibly developing in the heaviest bursts of snow.

Slick conditions are more likely to develop as temperatures drop Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with snow accumulations of one to two inches possible near the lakeshore during that time.

Snow will gradually taper off during the day Wednesday, with some sun returning for Thursday.
