WEST MICHIGAN — The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has upgraded much of the FOX 17 viewing area from a Winter Weather Advisory to a Winter Storm Warning.

The warning goes through 4 AM tomorrow, and includes Muskegon, Kent, and Ionia counties; and every county south of there to the Indiana state line. The warning is in effect for the likelihood of heavy snow today and tonight.

Before the snow does taper off, we will likely see anywhere from 4 to 10 inches of accumulation. We are expecting 4 to 7 inch snow totals north of I-96. Along and south of I-96, snowfall totals will be higher; likely in the 7 to 10 inch range:
