After a warm February, winter has settled into West Michigan for a stretch of days -- even bringing a threat of accumulating snow.
A low pressure system will head toward the Great Lakes region, arriving in the form of light snow showers during the morning Monday, March 13, and lasting into Tuesday.
Weather models are somewhat in agreement with snowfall totals. Most of West Michigan will likely have 2+ inches of snow accumulation by Tuesday. Travel conditions will be slick through the duration of the event.
Since the end of January, Grand Rapids has not measured more than 1.2 inches of snow in a 24-hour time period. The month of February was the warmest and fifth least snowy in recorded history.
Unseasonably cold air lingers during the system. High temperatures will be in the low 30s Monday and Tuesday. Highs will return to the 40s later in the week.
