Severe Weather Center 3 Forecast

This is a tricky forecast for several reasons. First, snow, sleet, and freezing rain arrive in Michigan prior to midnight with a several hour period of the messy mix through daybreak Tuesday.

Along I-94, including Kalamazoo, our mix will transition to rain before changing back over to snow by late Tuesday.

It's important to note, all of West Michigan will see a couple additional inches of snow Tuesday night through Wednesday.

40 mph gusts from the northeast then the southwest increase West Michigan's risk for power outages.

North of I-96, most of this event will transpire as snow.

The rain/freezing rain line may move as far northward as I-96. Right now, Tuesday's high temperatures are expected to reach the middle and upper 30s.
