010614radarWEST MICHIGAN —  The potent Winter Storm that brought snow accumulations of over a foot of snow to West Michigan has moved out of Michigan allowing for some much-needed clearing for some hard hit areas. As the low moves east, winds will shift to the northwest allowing for lake effect snow bands to develop.

Lake effect bands will align along the Lakeshore, however gusty winds will likely bring the bands inland to the US-131 corridor. Gusty winds will also create extreme wind chills today of 20 to 30 below zero throughout the afternoon and drop visibilities to near zero. Blowing and drifting snow will cause travel to be hazardous as road crews battle arctic temperatures.
