GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — After three days of heavy snow, icy roads and cold temperatures, West Michigan is finally close to seeing some relief from winter.

As of Saturday night, Grand Rapids has seen 23.3″ inches since Thursday. On average, November sees 7.6 inches of snow in total. This total is the largest three-day consecutive snowfall total on record for Grand Rapids.

All Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories have been canceled. Intermittent lake-effect snow showers will continue through early Sunday before winding down.

Although the snow will come to an end, wind chills will hover in the single digits to low teens across West Michigan through Sunday as gusty winds continue.


The city of Battle Creek is lifting a snow emergency at 6 p.m. on Sunday. It started at noon on Saturday.

During the snow emergency, parking on all city streets is prohibited so that snowplows can clear the roads quickly. Once it is lifted, street parking will be allowed.
