The last round of snow was primarily lake effect snow, so it was light and fluffy, which is better for driving and shoveling. Another complex set of disturbances will impact the Great Lakes for Thursday. This snow will have a higher water content and make it much harder to shovel. The heaviest snow should stay north of I-96 where 6-10 inches are possible.
With the forecast snow the Grand Rapids National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for counties north of I-96 from 6AM-6PM Thursday. Since the storm is still a day away there may be some shifting in the location of the heaviest bands of snow.
Flooding remains a problem for part of West Michigan, from the recent ice jams on the area rivers.
See the slideshow on the top for a few forecast weather maps for the snow.
