WEST MICHIGAN — A clipper system is on track to develop light snow back into West Michigan through the mid-late morning period on Saturday. Periods of light snow will continue through the afternoon and evening dropping 1-2" of snow for many of us. The focus for the heaviest snow will be around and north of I-96 with lesser amounts likely to fall toward I-94 and southward.
Take note this system is moving quicker than the maps had indicated a few days ago and therefore we are forecasting a quicker arrival of snow on Saturday. Flurries can develop by mid-morning near the lakeshore and push inland quickly thereafter.
If current indications hold, the best snow rates would occur during the afternoon and early evening Saturday. Watch your driving around the region especially into the evening as we lose daylight and roads likely become increasingly slick.
Additional lake-effect flurries and snow showers are expected into Sunday as well. Light additional accumulations will be possible at that time.
