The weather will be taking a turn toward winter in Michigan after a long stretch of generally calm conditions and moderate temperatures.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of Southwest Michigan including Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, Eaton, Kalamazoo, & Van Buren counties. It goes into effect at 7:00 Tuesday evening and will end at noon on Wednesday.

In the advised areas, total snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are expected with some locally higher amounts possible. The heaviest snow showers are expected to occur during the evening. Along with the snowfall, windy conditions are expected to develop during the night. Low temperatures will be in the upper teens, but wind chills by morning are forecast to be between -5 and 5.

Patchy blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility and the hazardous conditions will impact travel Wednesday morning. Slow down and use caution while traveling. Plan on slippery road conditions and maybe some extra time for the commute.
