Snowy, Slushy, Sloppy Saturday

WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) —  So far this season, Grand Rapids has nearly 80 inches of snow and Muskegon is over 95 inches. It appears we will add to those totals Saturday.

This image from our in-house computer model, Future Track, shows snowfall amounts on average between three and six inches. There could be some sleet, freezing rain, and rain along and south of I-94. Regardless, this won’t be a huge snow, but it could be a huge mess. This snow will be falling at warmer temperatures, so the water content of the snow will be higher. Therefore, it will be more of a wet, slushy snow and not as easily removed. This snow is sometimes called “heart attack” snow because more heart attacks occur when shoveling this type of snow compared to the lighter, fluffier snow.

All of West Michigan is under a winter weather advisory starting later tonight and continuing until 10pm Saturday.
