LANSING, Mich. — Light snow is expected at times through this morning with an inch or so of snow likely by daybreak. A Winter Weather Advisory is officially in effect until noon on Tuesday for all of mid-Michigan plus Hillsdale county is under a Winter Storm Warning until 10 am Tuesday. Light snow will likely taper off to just flurries through the mid-morning period on Monday and leave us with fairly tranquil afternoon conditions before a new slug of moisture heads northward in the mid-late evening. Snow can be heavy at times into the early morning hours of Tuesday. 4 to 7 inches are expected in southeastern sections of this advisory, including the areas near Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Lansing, and Jackson. We then watch for the potential for yet another round of more snow on Thursday and Friday. Temperatures remain bitter cold at the start of this week, but slowly bounce back closer to average by next weekend. Bundle up and drive safe!
