WESTERN MICHIGAN – Although the weather conditions in Western Michigan last Saturday were excellent with high temperatures in the 60s, conditions change rapidly on Sunday evenings and early in the work week. Snowfall returns to Western Michigan on Sunday night to early Monday morning as the low-pressure system passes through the Lower Peninsula. Most of Western Michigan will receive snowfall, but in places southeast of Kalamazoo winter rains are possible.
The latest track FOX 17 Future Track shows that snowdrifts are moving to southwestern Michigan around 2 a.m. Monday. The snow is gradually moving north until the early hours.
On Monday mornings on Monday downpours at work become widespread. Below is a photo of the FOX 17 Future Track on Monday at 7 p.m. Roads could be slippery and snowy in places.
The heaviest and most massive snow is expected Monday from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. Snow gradually falls after 1pm, with a little rainfall until late in the evening.
Snow accumulation models show that 1 to 3 inches are expected to spread widely in Western Michigan by Tuesday morning. Isolated larger amounts are possible closer to US-10 and north of I-96.
