GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Craig: An area of low pressure will move across Ohio Thursday morning giving West Michigan a lengthy period of light snow. The latest information we have on this system is that it will pass far enough to the south and east that most of us will only get a glancing blow. It looks like most areas will escape with relatively light totals, with most of us seeing about 1" to 2". The higher amounts of 3", perhaps 4" will be well south/east of Grand Rapids. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Barry, Eaton, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, Berrien, Cass, St. Joseph, and Branch counties from this evening through late morning Thursday.
TONIGHT: Cloudy with light to steady snow showers developing, mainly after 9pm. Lows in the mid 20s. East winds at 5 to 10 mph becoming northeast.
TOMORROW: Snow showers likely. Most areas will receive 1 to 2 inches of snow. Highs near 30 degrees. Northeast to north winds at 5 to 15 mph.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Flurries or widely scattered snow showers possible, mainly before 2am. Mostly cloudy with lows in the lower 20s. North/northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.
FRIDAY: A chance of morning flurries or widely scattered snow showers. Mostly cloudy with highs in the lower 30s. North to northwest winds at 5 to 15 mph.
