Winter storm winding down Tuesday afternoon

The snow will come to an end Tuesday afternoon.

The bulk of messy weather is behind us as one of the first impactful winter storms wraps up.

After several accidents, over 100 school closings, and tricky commutes the heaviest of snowfall is behind us. Reports as of 9 am range from 1.5 to 4 inches of snowfall, with another 1 to 3 more inches likely by sunset.

Snow will become scattered around noon today and spotty by the late afternoon to evening hours. Coming to an end by sunset. If you have snowfall reports, pictures, our questions you can text us at 616-559-1310 or submit your reports directly to the National Weather Service. 

Otherwise, the 13 on Your Side Weather Team will have updated snowfall totals tonight at 5 and 6 p.m.

Evening commutes will still be dicey, as plow trucks work to clear the roadways. Secondary roadways will likely be slow moving through early tomorrow morning. Be sure to always give yourself extra time, never distracted drive, and leave plenty of space between you and the car in front of you. 

The forecast returns to relatively quiet for the remainder of the week. Temperatures will be below average through Friday afternoon and our next system looks to arrive late Sunday night into Monday morning.
