GRAND RAPIDS — West Michigan woke up with light snow and bitter cold temperatures that will stay with us all throughout the day. Minor accumulations of snowfall that could lead to slick spots out on the roadways especially if you live along or south of I-96.
AN upper level low pressure system will keep the widespread snow throughout West Michigan all day. By the days end we expect a general 1-2" of snowfall for Saturday with some of you along the lakeshore possibly building to 3 inches of snowfall.
On Sunday we will have colder air wrapping around that system and our winds will shift to give us a lake effect snow set up. We expect anyone along or west of US-131 to gain another 1-2" of snowfall.
Monday we will have another round of lighter snow adding another 1-2 inches of snowfall but this round of snow will be focused for our communities to our south and east. We will also see some of the coldest air of the season on Monday as we only expect an afternoon high temperature of 10 degrees and feeling colder once factoring in the winds.
Temperatures will rebound a bit leading into the end of the week as we push afternoon highs into the middle and upper 20s. More snowfall chances arrive again by late week as well. Bundle up and drive safe!
