WEST MICHIGAN — Our biggest snow of the season thus far in Grand Rapids appears to be on the horizon (that's not saying much)! A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 8 P.M. Tuesday evening until 1 P.M. Wednesday afternoon. The bulk of the snow will fall between 9 P.M. tonight and 5 A.M. tomorrow morning.

It appears as though 2-4" of snow can fall in Grand Rapids in a relatively narrow window between about 9 P.M. Tuesday and 5 A.M. Wednesday before a shift to a wintry mix occurs. Amounts on the order of 4-6" will be possible across northern Ottawa, northern Kent, northern Montcalm, and sections to the north from there within the West Michigan viewing area. Amounts will taper to the south where milder air will nose northward sooner minimizing the potential for significant snow accumulations.

Bottom line, look out for slippery and perhaps snow-covered roadways across portions of West Michigan late this evening and early Wednesday morning. Stay tuned to FOX 17 on-air and online for updates.
