GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Scattered snow flurries will continue during the day Tuesday, with the potential for a bit more snow even into early April.

An upper-level low-pressure system in the Northeast will gradually pull away from the region, but it has enough moisture and energy still holding on around the Great Lakes to generate some scattered very light snow showers.  Snow will be just enough to leave a dusting in a few spots.

Dry air will gradually move into West Michigan Tuesday night and Wednesday, which will bring the last flurries to an end and allow for clouds to break a bit.

Sunshine may have to fight off some areas of cloud cover at times through the end of the week, but conditions will gradually become more seasonable heading into Easter weekend with highs approaching 50°.

The next system will arrive over the weekend with some rain likely Sunday, but with another push of cold air waiting behind it that may create some snow showers early next week.  Monday will mark the first day of April, and some snow showers are possible during that time.
