WEST MICHIGAN — The clipper system we have been tracking for several days has brought accumulating snow throughout Sunday. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until midnight tonight for much of the viewing area. The advisory ends mid-evening for areas along and south of I-94.

Snow amounts will generally range from 2" to 5" inches around the viewing area. The lesser amounts will be to the south and the greater amounts further north of Grand Rapids.

Marginally milder air works in from the south this evening and early overnight and precipitation may end as a bit of drizzle/light rain/freezing drizzle for sections along and south of I-94. A touch of drizzle could end the event as far north as Grand Rapids as well. but the bulk of the moisture falls as snowfall.

Even though snowfall will be over long before the commute on Monday morning, be aware that slippery stretches on roadways will still possible. Some sunshine actually mixes with clouds on Monday and helps bump temps into the lower to middle 30s. We are keeping our eyes on another weather system that could return some snow to West Michigan by Wednesday evening into Thursday. Some of the coldest air this season is expected to arrives for Thursday and Friday.
