WEST MICHIGAN — Now that we are in late April and the average last day with snow is April 10th, here's to hoping this is the last time we have to mention snow until fall.

Wednesday morning/afternoon will feature more accumulating snow. A band will develop north of a warm front that is approaching West Michigan. This band of snow will be very narrow, so some locations will see snow around one inch while others will see nothing.

This makes forecasting who will see what quite a challenge. Current indications have those north of I-94 having the best shot of snow. Up to an inch is anticipated on the grass by the afternoon, but some isolated spots could approach two inches. This possibility will be highest around I-96. We also don't need anymore snow as the amount we have already seen this month is above April's normal snowfall of 1.8 inches.

Once the snow is over by the end of the afternoon, it will be replaced with temperatures in the 40s and 50s along with rain showers. Some of the showers could even contain thunder. Any snow that sticks will melt by the end of Wednesday. As we look at the rest of the week, temperatures will generally remain in the 50s with conditions getting towards 60 degrees on Friday.
