The Grand Rapids National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of the West Michigan counties along and west of US-131. The advisory is from 1 PM Monday until 1 PM Tuesday. Locations in the advisory area can expect to see an additional 3 – 5 inches with a few locations receiving 6 inches. The highest accumulations are likely for the lakeshore communities north of I-96. The strong wind will create hazardous driving conditions, due the blowing and drifting of the fresh snow.
