WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Haleigh Vaughn: Steady snow showers are falling across West Michigan, expected to continue through the overnight hours. Several inches are possible, with the heaviest snow development overnight. Locations along and south of I-96, including Grand Rapids, could receive 3" to 5" of snow, with isolated higher amounts near I-94. North of Grand Rapids, and north of I-96, we expect lighter totals in the 1" to 3" range. Colder air moves in for Sunday, setting off isolated lake effect snow showers. Temperatures become slightly better for Tuesday, before another blast of frigid air arrives later Wednesday. High temperatures will only be in the teens on Thursday and Friday, with overnight low temperatures in the single digits. More snow will be possible Wednesday into Thursday.

TONIGHT: Cloudy and breezy with snow likely. Slick travel conditions. It will start to taper off by daybreak. Lows in the teens. Winds north at 10 to 20 mph.

TOMORROW / SUNDAY: Early morning snow tapers off to lake effect snow showers west of U.S. 131. Becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Colder, with highs in the low/mid 20s.
