WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) —  It’s an early start to the snow season in parts of West Michigan, and that means there could be an early start to slick roads.

This map shows current temperatures as of 9pm Wednesday night. As you can see, some areas are already close to freezing. As the lake-effect rain and snow continues to fall, so will temperatures. That could result in some slick spots in parts of the area. Because winds are from the northwest, the best chance for snow accumulation is south of I-96 and along and west of U.S. 131.

Make sure you join Meteorologist Jon Shaner on FOX 17 Morning News starting at 5AM for an update on the weather and the roads as you head in to work and school.

We will have an update on the lake-effect after the World Series on FOX 17 News. Of course, you can get the forecast, as well as the radar image, anytime at
