WEST MICHIGAN — Get ready for another bout with winter Monday night into Tuesday morning folks!
Though flurries and light snow overnight into Monday morning can collect to an inch or so, the better surge of moisture arrives Monday evening with an area of low pressure that will be sliding off to our southeast. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect until midday Tuesday for the prospect of a few more inches of snow locally in Grand Rapids and several more inches for sections to the south nearer the I-94 corridor and especially southeastward to the Indiana Line.
Areas of flurries and light snow can be around on Monday morning but a fairly quiet late morning and afternoon is likely for most of us in terms of accumulating snowfall. Significant snow will develop from south to north during the evening hours. Sections nearer the Indiana Line can expect an increase in snow coverage and intensity around 5 P.M. or so with snow heading northward thereafter. We for snow to envelop the Kalamazoo and Battle Creek areas around 6 P.M. and the Grand Rapids area around 8 P.M.
Total snow amounts from Monday evening into Tuesday morning will range from 3-5" in Grand Rapids to around 6" or so around Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. The tendency will be for more snow to fall the further south and east you reside in the viewing area. Locally higher amounts to 7-8" will be possible across eastern St. Joseph, Branch, Calhoun, and Eaton counties.
