GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at noon through midnight for our communities along the lakeshore including Allegan, Muskegon, Ottawa and Van Buren counties. We expect a quick 2-4 and 3-6 inches of snowfall with possible some locations gaining more. Temperatures will only work into the upper teens today and feel colder once you factor in the winds. These temperatures could also impact the efforts of road salt and road cleanup. Take it slow and drive safe!


You can run into slick spots out on the roadways Monday morning especially on secondary roads as we still are working to recover from the last several days of snowfall. If you live along the lakeshore really anywhere along or west of US-131 your commute home this evening can be a bit of a challenge as we will quickly gain on our snowfall totals.


Tuesday morning's commute can be difficult as well along the lakeshore as by this time we expect to have several inches of snowfall. We can continue to see snow through Tuesday afternoon before we quiet back down to mostly cloudy skies.


Get use to the snow and cold as we will continue to see snow showers pretty much off and on all week plus the arctic air is sticking around for atleast the next 10 days. Bundle up and drive safe!
