011314futureWEST MICHIGAN — Light drizzle will move into West Michigan this morning as temperatures stay above average with morning temperatures staying in the upper 30’s and low 40’s. As we head through late afternoon and early evening temperatures will start to fall allowing light drizzle to transition into a wintry mix of wet snow and rain.

Light snow will come to an end tonight as we see a temporary break in precipitation before our next system moves in. Temperatures will start on a cooling trend as a clipper system moves in Tuesday bringing chances for snow Tuesday afternoon. Heaviest snow accumulations will stay north of I-96 with 3 to 6 inches possible for areas like Muskegon, Ludington, Big Rapids and Hart. Areas along and south of I-96 will likely see smaller snow accumulations of around 1 to 3 inches and light snow around and inch or less along and south of I-94.

Snow then transitions into more lake-enhanced snow showers Wednesday with little to no accumulations before our next shot at colder air and accumulating snow drops down into the Great Lakes Thursday.
