WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) — Monday was the fourth consecutive day with high temperatures near or above 40 degrees, but it looks like the January thaw is about to end.

A winter weather advisory has been posted for Newaygo, Oceana, and Mecosta Counties starting Tuesday and continuing through 1:00pm Wednesday. Snowfall totals in these areas could be 4 to 6 inches. This is supported by our in-house computer model, Future Track. This image shows snow totals by Wednesday morning.

Remember, recent rains have washed the salt off area roadways, so there will be likely be some slippery spots once the snow starts Tuesday.

Cold and snowy weather continues for much of the rest of the week. For the latest forecast, join us on FOX 17 News or visit the weather page at
