Lake Effect Snow Warning/Advisory

January 20th, 2013 at 3:51 am by under Bill's Blog, Weather

The National Weather Service has issued a Lake-Effect Snow Warning for Mason, Lake, Oceana, Muskegon, Ottawa, Allegan, Van Buren and Kalamazoo Counties for up to 10″ of new snow and a Lake-Effect Snow Advisory for Newaygo, Kent, Barry and Calhoun Counties.  These run from 7 pm Sunday evening until 5 pm Monday (but could be extended).  This is the time when snow is expected to be heaviest, though lighter snow will continue today and more off than on right into Weds. AM.  Roads will become snow-covered and slippery.  Temperatures will be stuck in the teens much today with readings struggling to the low-mid teens Monday and low teens on Tuesday.  The wind chill will drop below zero at times and the wind will be strong enough to cause drifting snow.   Keep up with the blog and the comment thread for new information and with Storm Team 8 on WOOD-TV and here at

    LOL!! Just picked Hubby up at GRR – sunny there – but snowing like crazy (YAY!!!) here in the land of the “Persistent Snow Bands”. I might have a couple of inches on the lawn – everything else has blown clear. At the moment I’m getting those awesome big fat Lake Effect snowflakes :-)
