Winter Storm comes to mid-Michigan

It is now predicted that the Lansing area will get 4 to 6 inches of snowfall from the season's first winter storm.


According to the National Weather Service office in Grand Rapids (NWS): "The heaviest snow of the entire event looks to occur Saturday afternoon and evening. Total snowfall by Sunday may exceed a foot in spots near and west of U.S. Highway 131. Given the variable nature of lake-effect snow (it occurs in bands), not everyone will see these totals. Be prepared for low visibilities, slippery travel and variable conditions over short distances. Slow down if traveling and allow extra time to reach your destination." (NWS -- 5:03 am EST Nov 18, 2022)
