Wednesday Forecast Update: Lake-Effect Snow Continues

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Snow showers will continue into the afternoon, with the most consistent bands falling along and west of a line from Muskegon to Battle Creek.

Between snow Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, some parts of West Michigan had already reported between two and four inches of snowfall, with the highest amounts in Allegan, Van Buren, western Kalamazoo, and Berrien counties.

Additional snow accumulations will be fairly minor the rest of the day, as snow will gradually diminish into the afternoon.  However, sporadic bursts of heavier snow may still limit visibility at times.  One such very narrow band was moving through parts of Montcalm, Ionia, and Clinton counties as of 10:00 A.M.

Despite the snow and temperatures in the 20s Wednesday morning, road conditions were not as bad as may have been expected.  Highway speeds were being indicated as close to normal as of 10:00 A.M.  Still, wet pavement should be treated as potentially slick, especially on ramps, bridges, and overpasses.
