A National Weather Service issued Winter Weather Advisory for Calhoun County was set to expire at 7 p.m. Tuesday, as lake effect snow showers dissipate. That should give residents and motorists a chance to catch their collective breath after a day of heavy snow mostly west of Battle Creek, though many officials from schools in Calhoun County elected to cancel classes Tuesday morning.

A roller coaster of temperatures is expected for the balance of the week, as Wednesday's high in the mid-teens is expected to be surpassed by highs well above freezing Thursday and Friday, before leveling out again over the weekend.

National Weather Service forecasters caution motorists about potential freezing rain in the evening and overnight hours, especially Friday into Saturday when borderline-freezing temperatures could have us straddling between rain and snow.
