(WEST MICHIGAN) — An early spring snowstorm takes aim on portions of the Midwest this weekend but West Michigan will likely dodge the bullet as the snow storm passes less than 50 miles to the south. Areas of Indiana could see around 6 to 10 inches of snow as a potent spring snow storm moves east Sunday and Monday. Areas along and south of I-94 could see some snow but the heaviest snow will stay well to the south into northern Indiana. This storm is forecasted to have a very sharp gradient meaning that areas close in proximity will have sharply different effects. Some areas will see quite a bit of snow while others may not see much if any at all. With that being said, we have kept the snow chances in for the extreme southern areas of Michigan because a storm track shift of even 50 miles would bring heavier snowfall into southern Michigan. It is more than likely however that many areas will see absolutely no effects from this storm other than some cooler temperatures and cloud cover.

As the storm moves off to the east winds will shift around and become breezy for Sunday and Monday. Northwesterly winds will usher in slightly cooler temperatures for Monday and Tuesday and bring slight chances for some light snow flurries. Once the storm exits the region sunshine and warmer temperatures return with afternoon highs warming up into the upper 40’s to around seasonably average.
