WEST MICHIGAN – Though weekday temperatures have been gentle and snow is melting in most areas, we’re about to get a brand new layer of perhaps a number of inches of snow for the realm as we close to the tip of week. There’s a broad zone of low stress shifting in direction of us tonight and tomorrow, and ultimately past us (to the east) on Saturday. As this low continues to brush throughout the realm, it is going to progressively draw cooler air into the FOX 17 viewing space.
Though it may be sufficient to combine a bit rain tomorrow afternoon, a lot of the realm will see snow simply earlier than the morning journey. This can make the roads moist to muddy, so driving may be a bit slower than regular:
The snow will proceed from Friday evening by means of Saturday in a scattered trend, with the best risk of slippery roads in our northern counties akin to Mecosta, Oceana, and Newaygo:
Here is a have a look at the snow totals by means of Friday evening for the whole space:
Because the graph above reveals, most areas will see lower than an inch of build-up on grassy surfaces. With temperatures effectively above freezing on Friday, the roads must be moist in most areas.
The snow will proceed to be scattered, so Saturday evening we are going to see an inch or so of extra accumulation (with increased quantities north of I-96). Once more, freeway issues will happen primarily north of Grand Rapids in Montcalm, Oceana, Newaygo, and Mecosta counties.
Here is a have a look at our place by way of snowfall in comparison with the Grand Rapids common:
Though there’s extra snow within the 7-day forecast, our totals for the season will stay effectively under common through the prolonged forecast, as there are not any main snowstorms within the 7-day planner at the moment. Keep tuned to FOX 17 for updates!
