Winter Weather Visiting Grand Rapids This Weekend
Well West Michigan, the warm fall was great but all great things must come to an end. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from 1 a.m. Saturday until 7 a.m. Sunday.
We'll continue on through Friday with some great autumn weather. It will be a bit breezy, but plenty of sun and temperatures should hang out in the low 40s. Rain will move in this evening, and then turn to snow around 10 p.m.
This is where it gets fun.
We won't see much for accumulation overnight Friday into Saturday, but things really pick up late Saturday morning, dropping around four inches by the day's end. Temperatures on Saturday should linger around the mid 30s for most of the area.
Snow will continue through Saturday night, estimates for additional accumulation peg things around three inches.
Snow may linger around Sunday, but there is a chance West Michigan could see some sun, with highs in the lower 30s.
The National Weather Service officially predicts five to eight inches by the end of the storm.
Of course with any type of weather, be sure to use extra caution when driving, slow down, turn headlights on, and leave plenty of room between your car and the car ahead of you.
