GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for a lake effect snow event that starts Wednesday night.

The watch covers Allegan, Kalamazoo, Oceana, Ottawa and Van Buren counties, starting late Wednesday night and going until Friday afternoon.

Some areas of the lakeshore may see one to two inches of snow per hour during the peak of the event.

If you don’t have the FOX 17 Weather App, now is a good time to get it.  You can see all the lake effect snow bands on the Interactive Radar.  On the FOX 17 News app, you can see all the school closings and cancellations, as well as the live traffic map.  Check those out at this link > http://via.wxmi.com/PxAfl
