GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The National Weather Service has issued an Ice Storm Warning for parts of mid-Michigan including Calhoun County.

Forecast models continue to come closer in agreement as a potent winter storm approaches West Michigan. While there is still a little bit of uncertainty it is certain that all of West Michigan will experience a wintry mess as we head through the day Saturday and into Sunday. Rain is starting to move north into southern Michigan this morning and should remain mostly rain for the first half of the day, as temperatures fall in the north and rain inches farther north an area of ice will develop between I-94 and I-96. An Ice Warning is in effect for mid-Michigan including the city of Battle Creek as ice is expected to accumulate around a quarter of an inch.

Rain, and ice will eventually transition into snow as cooler air moves in near daybreak on Sunday. Heaviest snow Sunday will be confined to Northern Lower Michigan and out of the Grand Rapids area. Snow accumulations of between 1″ and 2″ could be possible along and north of I-96 mixed in with rain, freezing rain and ice. Areas along and south of I-94 will likely see a mix of rain, ice and freezing rain with little to no snow accumulation.
