Winter weather advisories remain with smooth travel possible

WEST MICHIGAN – Many across West Michigan saw scattered snow showers on Sunday. Some accumulations have been reported, but the biggest focus Monday is temperatures falling below freezing with stronger westerly winds. Due to wet pavement that is expected to freeze Sunday evening, the National Weather Service is continuing its winter weather advisory through Monday morning. It will be important to stay up to date with the latest forecasts on slowdowns and the latest radars.

Forecast for Sunday evening, November 26, 2023

We've seen reports of 2 inches from Muskegon to the north. Grand Rapids recorded just 0.2 inches at Grand Rapids International Airport. But most of the snow has melted on contact and is expected to freeze overnight.

We will pause for snow overnight as a cold front moves in from the west. As it moves east, more lake effect snow will develop into Monday morning. This may cause minor travel impacts on snowy and wet/icy roads. Be especially careful on bridges and overpasses. Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing Monday afternoon, keeping the potential for slippery roads into Tuesday.

As for additional accumulations, don't expect much until midday Monday. However, Monday afternoon and evening, we expect cold air mixed with a push of moisture in the upper levels to begin lake effect snowfall overnight into Tuesday. Tuesday would be the best chance of any school closures. Stay tuned to FOX17 for any closures or delays.

How cold will the temperatures be?
Get ready for a blast of cold air, West Michigan! High temperatures will only be in the upper 20s Monday and Tuesday, with overnight lows in the upper 20s and lower 20s. Wind chills will be a big factor as well, as temperatures will be in the teens Monday afternoon! The weather will get colder Monday night, and feel like single digits Tuesday morning! Wind speeds at times between Sunday night and Tuesday will reach 30 mph.

This indicates an explosion of cold air in the upper layers of the atmosphere on Monday, which will allow lake-effect snow to form.

Make sure you collect on Monday and Tuesday. Fortunately, Wednesday's warm-up carries over into the weekend. Stay tuned to FOX17 for subsequent updates.
