The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 11 pm to 8 am for Ottawa, Kent, Ionia, Clinton, Allegan, Barry, Eaton, Ingham, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun and Jackson Counties. Rain has developed across much of the area and is changing over to sleet and snow. Roads will initially just be wet, but a slick spot is possible as temperatures fall to the low 30s tonight. The snow should end before sunrise and we should see a good amount of sunshine tomorrow. Temperatures will rise to the 40s and the snow will melt tomorrow.
We’re expecting up to an inch of snow on the grassy areas, mainly in a narrow band south of Grand Rapids. If the snow comes done fairly heavy, watch for slick spots to develop and also around daybreak, when temperatures will be coolest in the low 30s.
