Lake effect snow showers continue across West Michigan for another day as the arctic air sweeps across the warmer waters of Lake Michigan. The Grand Rapids National Weather Service continues the Lake Effect Snow Advisory for the counties generally along and west of US-131 and the counties along I-94 until 7 PM Wednesday. With the forecast wind direction, locations south and west of Grand Rapids have observed the highest accumulations. So far there have been reports of nearly a foot of snow. An additional 2-4 inches of fresh snow is possible south and west of Grand Rapids with an additional 1-2 inches in the city.
The slideshow at the top of the page has a few forecast weather maps for snow and cold.
As the snow piles up, the Grand Rapids National Weather Service wants any snowfall reports and pictures you may have.
You can send then your snowfall reports via their on-line spotter report form. This can be accessed at: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/grr/spotter/
If you “like” their office facebook page, you can also report your snowfall totals and post pictures on it at: NWS Grand Rapids Facebook Page
