GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (March 26, 2014) — The calendar indicates we’re nearly a week into spring. However, the long stretch of winter weather continues late tonight and Thursday morning.

This image from our in-house computer model, Future Track, shows an area of sleet, freezing rain, and snow moving into West Michigan just in time for the morning commute. Since temperatures will be below freezing, there could be some slick spots on the area roadways.  However, temperatures will rise into the 40s Thursday afternoon, so any travel troubles should literally melt away.

Rainfall amounts won’t be execssive, with most areas between a quarter of an inch and three-quarters of an inch. Here’s a map that shows some of the potential amounts:

Numerous rivers in West Michigan are running high. These rainfall amounts will likely elevate the levels even higher, but no major flooding is expected at this time. For a look at the latest river levels from the National Weather Service, click HERE.
