Valid 12/19/2023

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for all of the lakeshore counties, as well as Lake and Osceola counties. VanBuren, Cass, and Berrien counties are under a Winter Storm Warning.


Locally intense lake effect snow bands are forecasted to produce a wide range of snow accumulations across the region with the highest amounts centered in the warning area but also in the northwestern portion of our coverage area. 1-8 inches with locally higher amounts are expected across the region starting early Monday morning.


Winds will also steadily increase along the lakeshore with sustained winds 15-25mph with gusts up to 50mph. These winds, combined with the lake effect snow, will create areas of near blizzard-like conditions and will significantly reduce visibility, particularly along the I-94 corridor southwest of Kalamazoo.


Conditions will be particularly hazardous in the afternoon hours on Monday and we do expect some schools, particularly in the Winter Storm Warning geographic areas to close in anticipation of the life-threatening travel conditions for the afternoon and evening commute on Monday.


On Tuesday, should current snowfall predictions be verified, we expect numerous schools in the southwestern and perhaps the northwestern portions of our coverage area to be closed on Tuesday as a result of hazardous travel conditions from blowing and drifting snow overnight Monday.


We will provide an update to this map and forecast Tuesday evening.

School Closing Predictions for Monday 12/18 are available at https://www.WestMichiganWeather.net/day-1
