GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — After a string of many smaller weather systems, a larger storm system is in the works for West Michigan Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Tuesday the storm will form in the Missouri River Valley region and begin pumping warmer air into West Michigan. As that warm air moves in, it will be rolling into and over cold air. This will lead to a chance of freezing rain very early Tuesday, especially north of I-96. Most of us will see a rain/snow mix turning to all rain by Tuesday afternoon.
After the low passes to our east, strong winds will pull cold air across the Great Lakes.
Gusty winds will whip around snow causing low visibilities Wednesday, especially near the lakeshore.
The system won’t be remarkable in terms of snow accumulation, but it will likely produce dangerous travel due to blowing snow. Conditions could be serious enough to cause closings and delays because of ice on Tuesday and heavy snow on Wednesday.
