Biggest Snowfall of the Season Expected, Winter Weather Advisory Through Sunday Morning
It looks like West Michigan will get off to a snowy start in 2022. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect 1p.m. Saturday through 7a.m. Sunday.
The National Weather Service is predicting 3 to 6 inches of snow throughout West Michigan, including Kent, Ottawa, Van Buren, Ionia, Allegan, Barry, Kalamazoo, and Calhoun counties.
According to NWS, a storm system is bringing snow to the region early this afternoon and it will become widespread by early evening.
The heaviest snow will occur between 6p.m Saturday and 1a.m. Sunday. Most snow will end by Sunday morning, but some lake-effect snow will linger.
Roads will become snow-covered and slippery across much of southern Lower Michigan this evening and especially overnight, as temperatures will fall from the 20s into the teens, making travel hazardous.
Be careful if you have to be on the roads! Keep an eye out for blowing and drifting snow too.
According to Wood TV 8, this storm will likely be the biggest single snow-maker in West Michigan so far this season. Previous snow events this winter have not exceeded 3.5 inches.
