The winter storm that brought snow to the southwestern quadrant of our viewing area last night is now heading off to the East Coast, where it will create more snow-havoc in the nation's capital. While most of our area was spared the brunt of the winter storm, folks along and southwest of a line from South Haven to Kalamazoo to Coldwater saw enough snow to make things interesting.
The heaviest snowfall was in Berrien County, where 6.8" were measured in St. Joseph, and 4.0" fell in Stevensville. A sampling of other reports from West Michigan include 2.5" in Sturgis and 2.0" in Paw Paw. Kalamazoo saw a burst of snow for about an hour last night, but it didn't amount to much more than a light coating on the ground.
You might be surprised at just how much snow fell very close to West Michigan. For example, as of 1:30 this morning (Wednesday), North Webster, Indiana (about 10 miles south of Elkhart), measured 11", Fort Wayne was reporting 10", and South Bend about 8". Chicago also took a big hit from the storm. Both Midway and O'Hare airports were slammed with 9" of snow. Several double-digit accumulations were reported in the city's western and northern suburbs. Southern Wisconsin saw between 6 and 9" of snow; Minnesota also took a shot, with a snow emergency being declared in several cities around Minneapolis. Up to ten inches of snow were reported in the Twin Cities.
With the winter storm in our rear view mirror, it looks like the weather for the rest of this week -- and through the weekend -- will be pretty quiet; no storms are on the offing, for now. A warm up begins Friday taking our temps to the 40s over the weekend. Another storm may be lining West Michigan up by early next week. Stay tuned!

On the heels of the winter storm that brushed West Michigan last night, we'll continue to see considerably cloudy skies today. Temps will remain cooler than average, with highs in the middle 30s.

Showers End Around Dinner; A Little Frost Tonight
Thursday Afternoon: Showers taper off toward dinnertime. Chilly and windy. Steady temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds N 15-30 mph.
Thursday Night: Rapid clearing and cold with lighter winds. Frost develops, especially north of I-96. Lows in the middle 30s. Winds N 5-15 mph.
Friday: Cold, frosty start then mostly sunny and comfortable in the afternoon. A bit breezy. Highs in the lower 60s. Winds N-NW 15-20 mph.
Saturday: Partly sunny and a bit warmer. Highs in the middle 60s. Winds NE-N 10-15 mph.
Good afternoon! Showers are parked along the US 131 corridor and will slowly move away from West Michigan as the afternoon progresses. Some unusually cold air for late May has already made in roads meaning upper 40s and lower 50s are it for your evening commute. Once we clear tonight, and that should happen quickly, temperatures plummet into the 30s. That's good enough for frost, especially in our normal cool spots and north of I-96. Newaygo and Mecosta counties remain under FROST ADVISORIES until 7 AM Friday morning.
The rest of your Friday is quiet and sunny. We'll see highs in just the lower 60s. Your Holiday weekend is tranquil with below normal temperatures. Middle 60s are all we muster Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Thunderstorms brew from South Bend to Chicago and northwestward. They are close enough to keep our eyes on, and we're including a small thunderstorm chance on Memorial Day. More typical early summer weather (nearly) settles in for the middle of next week with the resurgent middle 80s, perhaps warmer. Thunderstorms will also return. Have a great afternoon and evening! Keep it warm and dry! Chief Meteorologist Keith Thompson has a fresh take on your Holiday weekend LIVE at 5 PM!
