WEST MICHIGAN – The Winter Weather Advisory that began at 4 o’clock Saturday afternoon continues until Sunday at noon for many across West Michigan, mainly along and west of US-131. Snow began falling again late Saturday afternoon, and will continue into the first half of Sunday. Light-to-moderate snow could have us pick up mainly 1-2 inches of snowfall with some spots possibly exceeding that heading towards 3-4 inches. A Winter Storm Watch will take effect late Sunday night and run through Monday evening.

Sunday evening into Monday our next round of snow will enter West Michigan. This stronger system will bring heavy snowfall at times with high widespread accumulations. We expect 6 to 10 inches of snowfall from Sunday night to Monday night for most of our viewing area. The northern and southern ends of our communities can expect 4-8 inches of expected snowfall. We expect numerous school closings and difficult travel conditions.

Behind this system we will see some of the coldest temperatures we have seen in possibly decades. The arctic air will stay strong through the end of this week. Everyone needs to bundle up as frostbite will be possibly quickly. Please check on your neighbors and bring all pets indoors.
