We have our first widespread snow system moving through Lower Michigan Sunday and Sunday evening. This won’t be a big snow for the southeast half of Lower Michigan, but the first significant snow for the northwest half.
Here is the radar forecast from midnight tonight to 8 p.m. Sunday. It’s pretty clear to see that the upcoming snow brings flakes to all of us in Lower Michigan.
Snow begins tonight over northwest Lower Michigan in the middle of the night. Ludington, Cadillac and Traverse City will receive light snow overnight. Snow will spread southeast Sunday morning and impact Grand Rapids, Lansing and the Saginaw area. Snow will reach far southeastern Michigan, Ann Arbor and Detroit by early Sunday afternoon.
It’s a light snow for the southeastern half of Lower Michigan with about an inch of snow Sunday evening. So by Michigan standards, it’s not a big snow.
It’s a little different for the northwest half of Lower Michigan. I would call it two to four inches of snow Sunday night.
Here is the snowfall total through Sunday evening.
Roads will likely be cold enough for snow to stick to the surface. While it may not be a big snow for many of us, it will be the first smooth ride.
