How Much Snow, Ice Will We Get in West Michigan?
According to the National Weather Service, a wintry mix will arrive Monday, causing slippery travel in many areas, particularly with the evening commute. Ice accumulation during the day is expected along and north of I-96, which is north of the region that experienced Thursday's ice storm.
An icy mix is expected in parts of Lower Michigan Monday morning into the evening. Near and south of I-96, slick travel is possible on Mon morning, then precip will likely transition to ordinary rain later in the day. Farther north (near US-10), slick conditions are likely to develop by early Monday afternoon and continue into the night. Some power outages are possible.
Total snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations of around a tenth of an
inch are possible. Winds gusts could reach as high as 35 mph.
