WEST MICHIGAN — A winter storm system tracking into and through the Ohio Valley (to our south/east) will generate light to steady snow Wednesday night into the Thursday morning commute. This will not be a big snow producer for West Michigan, but it will create some inconvenient weather and likely some wet/snow covered roadways for Thursday. We are expecting a general 1" to 2" across most of our area, except 2" to 4" south/east of Grand Rapids where WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES remain in effect through 10 A.M. Thursday. See our snow totals map below.

Our map below shows the counties that have been placed in WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES. These areas will see the highest totals in the neighborhood of 2" to 4" into Thursday.

You can see what this system looks like on our weather map. It's an area of low pressure and the location can be seen on three different images below. The first one is valid for 6 A.M. Thursday.

The next image below is valid for noon on Thursday. Note the low or "L" just off to our south/east.

The last image below is valid for 6 P.M. Thursday. As this system pulls away from Michigan, snow will wind down Thursday afternoon.
