WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Erik Kostrzewa: A strong low pressure system will swing through Indiana and Ohio, giving us some accumulating snow tonight and Sunday. Due to how far south it is from us, the heaviest snow up to a foot will stay south of West Michigan. However, there will be enough of a push northward in the snow to bring a few inches to the area. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in place along and south of I-96 this evening and will expire after the morning tomorrow. Those north of I-96 will see 1/2" to 2" of snow. If you live between I-96 and I-94, you amounts will increase to 2" to 4" of powder. The highest snow totals, 4" to 6" with isolated 7" amounts, will be along and south of I-94. Accumulating snow will end by Sunday evening, but a few flurries could still linger into Monday.
TONIGHT: Cloudy with snow. 1/2" to 5" will be on the ground by sunrise. Lowest amounts will be north of I-96 with it getting heavier as you head towards the Michigan-Indiana border. Lows in the middle 20s. East winds around 10 – 15 mph.
SUNDAY: Cloudy with snow showers. Heaviest in the morning, slowly falling apart later in the day. Accumulation after sunrise will stay below 2". Highs around 30.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy. Maybe a few flurries possible but mostly snow expected to stay south and east of West Michigan. Highs around 30.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy to partly sunny. Highs in the lower 30s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy to partly sunny. Highs in the lower to middle 30s.
