WEST MICHIGAN — WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Snow showers are expected this evening as an upper level disturbance slides into the southern portions of our state. We will likely see an additional moisture feed off Lake Michigan that will increase snow totals just a bit. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES are in effect from 3 P.M. today through 4 A.M. Wednesday for Ottawa, Allegan, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Berrien, and Cass Counties. Most locations will pick up an inch or two, but some could see 3" to 4" with lake enhancement. Otherwise, no big storm systems are in sight for the next several days, though some light snow may return by the back half of this coming weekend. Anticipate colder daytime highs generally in the upper 20s to lower 30s as we go forward.

TONIGHT: Cloudy skies. Snow showers this evening...the focus for the heaviest snow will be south and west of Grand Rapids. Look for 1" to 3", perhaps isolated 4" amounts with enough lake enhancement. Scattered flurries overnight under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Lows in the lower 20s. Wind chills in the teens. Winds west at 6 to 12 mph.

TOMORROW/WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. A few flurries early on. Breezy. Highs in the middle 20s. Southwest to south winds at 10 to 20 mph, higher gusts.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Temps slowly rise into the upper 20s to around 30 degrees. Southwest winds at 15-20 mph, gusts as high as 30 mph.

THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Breezy and somewhat milder with highs in the middle 30s. West winds at 15-20 mph, gusts to around 30 mph.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with light flurries possible. Highs in the upper 20s.
