WEST MICHIGAN — While many of us have already had enough of this early season winter with cold and accumulating snow (we actually recorded our coldest morning low today at just three above in GR), there is yet more accumulating snow on the way this evening and again on Tuesday.
A quick-hitting burst of about one to three inches of snow will occur this evening, then taper off overnight, before another burst of one to three inches hits for the Tuesday morning drive time commute. Everyone will get in on the action since this is more system snow. That said, lake enhancement will occur north/west of Grand Rapids where totals may be on the order of three to six inches through Tuesday. Much lighter amounts, about 0ne to two inches will occur south/east of Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids has already tallied more than 21 inches of snow thus far this season, far far ahead of the same time last year. If that wasn’t enough, our forecast models are showing the possibility (too early to know for sure yet) of a major winter storm Saturday night in to Sunday morning with several inches possible. As usual, the forecast models are not in agreement on this feature and we’ll need to wait for a few more forecast model runs…so stay up on later forecasts.
We should see temps warm briefly this week to the upper 30s/near 40 with some mixed precipitation and rain likely Thursday night and Friday. Get more at http://www.fox17online.com/weather. Drive safe!
