By lunchtime a system from the Southwest will inch it’s way into West Michigan turning the morning’s snow to sleet. The rain will fire off in Southwest Michigan first and then extend all the way into Big Rapids by dinnertime.

For all those who aren’t fans of the snow there is some good news in tomorrow’s forecast. Rain and warmer air from the South will move in by the afternoon. That rain will help melt the snow faster than if we were to just see sunny or cloudy skies.
