Winter Weather Advisories

The counties in purple on the map still have Winter Weather Advisories in effect Monday afternoon. The time the Advisories end varies by county. For Berrien, Cass, Allegan, Ottawa, Muskegon, Oceana, Mason, Manistee and Benzie Counties, the Advisory ends at 7 pm (Tue.). For Berrien County plus NW Indiana, the Advisory ends at 1 pm tomorrow (Tue.) and for SE Michigan, the Advisory ends at 7 pm this Monday evening.

Grand Rapids added 2.1″ of snow Sunday, bringing the season total up to 41.6″. That’s just 3.5″ below average-to-date. We had only had 9.4″ to this point last winter. I’ll get an updated snowfall total, including today’s snowfall, this evening.

Tody’s snowfall has been a general 1-3″ over the area with some lakeshore areas getting 3-6″. Look for snow-covered and occasionally slippery roads this Mon. PM/night.

Monday snow totals as of early PM: 6″ Port Sheldon, 5.3″ Covert, 5″ Holland, 4.5″ Portage, 4″ Ludington, Allegan, Paw Paw and Hastings, 3″ Walker and Zeeland. Temperatures at 1 pm varied from 27 at Benton Harbor to 24 at Kalamazoo, to 21 in Grand Rapids to 18 at Big Rapids to 9 at Ironwood in the U.P.

This system is bringing in a fresh batch of cold Canadian area.

Scattered lake-effect snow showers are possible Tuesday and the next general snow looks like it’ll move in Thursday with another 1-3″ possible. The colder than average pattern looks like it will last the rest of January and perhaps into the first week of February.
