More April snow on the way Sunday morning
WEST MICHIGAN — Low pressure developing over Colorado as of this writing will quickly move eastward today and tonight, bringing our next round of precipitation to the area for Sunday morning.
With a period of clear skies this evening, temperatures will drop into the lower to middle 20s. As the warm air aloft associated with this next system overrides this cold air at the surface, snow will quickly develop after about 2am. Right now, our forecast models are suggesting a heavy band of snow setting up right around sunrise along and north of I-96. Here, 2-4″ of snow is expected before enough mild air moves in to change the precipitation over to all rain.
But before this changeover to rain happens, many other parts of West Michigan will be looking at some snow. I think along and south of I-94, only a brief period of snow is expected around sunrise tomorrow morning. This will limit accumulations to an inch or less. But surrounding that 2-4″ area mentioned above, I think most of us will be looking at another 1-2″ of snowfall.
And all of this, of course, is falling on another 1 to 5 inches of unwanted Spring snowfall that just fell last night (totals listed in the image above)! Many people are anxious for spring at this point, and there are warmer temperatures in the forecast. In fact, highs will be in the 50s and even 60s for much of next week. Keep it tuned to FOX 17 for details on the coming warm-up!
