Another is a series of cold fronts will bring more snow and wind to West Michigan. The Grand Rapids National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for some of the West Michigan counties along and west of US-131 and north of Holland until 1 AM Friday. Locations in the advisory could see total snowfall accumulations of 2-5 inches. The wind will remain gusty causing some blowing and drifting of the fresh snow as well as reducing visibilities at times.
Locations outside of the advisory should see less than 3 inches of fresh snow.
Another disturbance will likely slide across that region into Saturday with more snow and travel headaches.
The cold and snowy weather will likely stick around for the rest of the month.
