Estimated time of snow departure for Michigan


Two more weaker systems will provide us with more snow across extreme southern Michigan Saturday and Sunday. An additional 1 inch to 6 inches of snow is possible by the end of the weekend. The first on Saturday will mainly roll across areas close to I-94.

Expected snow Saturday, February 10th, 2018

Another round of snow is possible Sunday. Accumulations will be light, around 1-3″. Temperatures are going to be fairly cold over the next several days which should allow that healthy snow pack to stick around. Most of West Michigan is now seeing at least 6″ of snow depth with a few pockets of 12-16″.

Temperature trend through the coming week.
