WEST MICHIGAN — West Michigan will see a "glancing blow" from a winter storm passing just to our south today. As we've been mentioning the past few days, this system continues to trend/track further south and east into West Virginia and the southern Ohio Valley. That means only our southern counties along/south of the I-94 corridor will see the heavier snow totals on the order of about 3" to 5" through Wednesday.
Below are the counties that remain under Winter Weather Advisories through 7 P.M. Wednesday. Counties not in the advisory will only see an inch or two of snow, with minimal accumulations, if any, well north of Grand Rapids.
There are already several schools canceling or delaying classes for Wednesday. For a full list, click here.
It's the commutes this morning and evening that will be affected, especially south/east of Grand Rapids where the heaviest snow falls. By Thursday, Arctic air will pour into the Great Lakes and high temperatures will only reach the middle 20s. That means lake effect snow showers are likely along/west of U.S. 131 both Thursday and Friday. Get the complete West Michigan forecast at www.fox17online.com/weather.
