WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Erik Kostrzewa: Lake-effect snow showers will continue into Saturday morning, providing another inch or so to those along Lake Michigan. The lakeshore counties from Van Buren county northward are under a Winter Weather Advisory until 9 AM. After the snow winds down early Saturday, we'll see a 36 hour period of relatively quiet conditions before the next storm system rolls in late Sunday. This system will produce 2" - 3" of snow area-wide (with perhaps some mixing for the Indiana border counties). Once the final round of snow ends, the warm-up begins! Temperatures will make it into the 40s both Tuesday and Wednesday.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with lake effect snow showers and flurries. Another inch or so by morning west of US-131. Some inland clearing possible. Lows around 12. Winds west-southwest at 5 to 10 mph.
SATURDAY: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Flurries possible during the morning. Highs in the mid 20s. Winds southwest at 5 to 10 mph.
SUNDAY: Increasing clouds with evening snow developing. Highs in the lower 30s.
MONDAY: Light snow/mix early, then drying out. Highs in the mid 30s. 2" to 3" of snow possible from the Sunday night event.
TUESDAY: Mainly dry with some breaks in the cloud cover. Highs top out in the low 40s.
