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.
