HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - This winter has been especially long, especially snowy and especially cold, but for some people, it hasn’t bottomed out yet.
National Weather Service forecasters say that an Arctic Clipper slated to arrive tomorrow evening could bring the chilliest temperatures of the season, especially inland. A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at 9 PM tonight, and for 18 hours, up to four inches of snow that will swirl from wind gusts as high as 40 miles per hour will lead to occasional white-out conditions for motorists and chills of as low as minus 20. Actual temperatures won’t make it into double digits above zero, which is as much as 30 degrees below what’s normal for this time of year.
Looking ahead through the weekend and into next week, NWS staffers at the Grand Rapids office say that cold and dry conditions should be expected, with no warm up over the immediate horizon.
