WEST MICHIGAN - A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for counties north and west of Grand Rapids beginning this evening at 7 P.M. and continuing until noon on Wednesday. Specifically, Ottawa, Muskegon, Oceana, and Newaygo Counties. We expect snow to develop this evening in these areas and continue overnight. The Wednesday morning commute will likely be snow covered and slippery in these areas with accumulations on the order of 2" to 4" possible. Elsewhere we expect just mainly cloudy skies.
