Next round of winter weather arrives

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An Alberta clipper has arrived across West Michigan providing us with another round of mostly light snow.

That clipper is drawing down more cold air and lake-effect snow will develop behind it with a north-northwest wind flow.

Clipper pushing through the Great Lake

By 6a.m. many locations have received 1/2 to 2″ of snow with another 1-2″ expected outside of where the lake effect will take over.

Additional snowfall through midnight


A single or a few bands of heavy lake-effect snow will develop over Lake Michigan or near the shoreline and dump additional snow mainly in northwest Indiana and Berrien County, but that band could also hit West Michigan’s shoreline.

Futurecast at 7pm

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Berrien County through the end of Saturday. Winter weather advisories are in effect for:

  • Allegan County until 7 p.m. Saturday,

Winter weather advisory & warnings

Another clipper system and lake-effect snow is likely for late Monday and Tuesday of next week. Even after that one there is the potential of a couple of more so the active pattern will remain just that.
