Lake-effect snow and more Arctic air on the way

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The brief warmup West Michigan saw on Wednesday will be just that: brief. We may not see temperatures this warm again for at least two weeks. 

The first in a series of Arctic cold fronts arrives Thursday.

This will increase the wind over Lake Michigan and trigger lake-effect snow. As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory beginning noon Thursday and running through 7 p.m. Friday. Expect the Thursday evening and Friday morning commutes to be adversely affected

Snow amounts will not be particularly heavy, mostly ranging from 3 to 6 inches in the advisory area.

The lake-effect will be a lighter snow than what fell over the weekend, so it should blow around much more as the winds are projected to pick up.
