Sun, 03 Feb 2013 21:19:50 GMT — A few Alberta Clippers passing through this week will bring more accumulating snowfall, especially for lake effect areas, before we get back into the 30s for the end of the week. We've got a few things going on... Luce Co-lake effect snow warning until 7pm Monday. 4-10+" possible, the highest amounts will be close to Lake Superior. NW winds will gust around 30mph, creating visibilities less than 1/4 mile. Chippewa, Leelanau, Antrim-lake effect snow warning until 7am Monday. 3-8" of snowfall accumulation overnight. The snowfall may be heavy at times. Expect hazardous road conditions. Crawford, Otsego, Kalkaska-lake effect snow advisory until 7am Monday. 3-7+" possible as snow continues through the overnight. Snow showers may be heavy at times, and visibility reduced to near zero. Mason Co-flood advisory for the Pere Marquette River near Scottville. Minor flooding is possible - remain alert if you're in this area in case the advisory is upgraded to a warning. Use caution if you are walking near the riverbank as well. Mecosta Co-flood warning until 2:30pm Monday... according to the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids - as of 1:30pm Sunday, flooding of the Muskegon River was still occurring near Rogers Heights. The river levels are currently stable, but due to continued cold temperatures the ice jam upstream continues to grow towards Big Rapids. Since movement of the ice jam is still possible, it's still considered to be a dangerous situation and residents are still encouraged to avoid the area until the water level recedes. Enjoy some sunshine Monday, as clouds build back in and snow showers pass through Tuesday. We'll get another break Wednesday before another low pressure crosses the lower peninsula Thursday. Northern Michigan will then return to some sunshine-and highs in the 20s and low 30s-to end the week. We're watching a stronger system from the plains for this upcoming weekend, which will bring highs in the 30s and possible wintry mix.
