Heading into the last week of January 2023, most of Mid-Michigan had barely seen a snowflake this month.

Ah, sure - a couple inches dropped over the weekend, but that's nothing by Michigan standards.

Looks like we're finally getting our first significant snow event of the month.

Winter Weather Advisories issued for much of Mid-Michigan

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather Advisories for parts of southern Lower Michigan, generally along and south of a line from Flint to Grand Rapids.

Snow will spread into Southern Lower Michigan Wednesday morning between 5am and 7am. The snow will be heavy at times through the course of the day. The highest snowfall totals will likely occur east of Kalamazoo and south of Lansing. 3 to 6 inches of new snow will be common within the advisory by the time it ends Wednesday evening.

Some of the southernmost parts of Mid-Michigan, from around Hillsdale to Metro Detroit and then northward into the Thumb, are under Winter Storm Warnings. Higher accumulations are expected in those areas.

Here's what to expect in Mid-Michigan

Despite the threat of 3 to 6 inches for the Lansing area, initial town-by-town forecasts from the National Weather Service and AccuWeather both leaned toward the lighter side of that range. As of Wednesday morning, NWS expectations had begun to lean toward the higher end of the 3-6" range for many Mid-Michigan locations, although AccuWeather's town-by-town accumulation predictions were largely unchanged..

However, here's what Chief Meteorologist Darrin Rockcole with WILX News 10 thinks:

This looks to be around a 3-4′' snowfall for the Lansing area. The snowfall may end up being closer to 3-6′' in the Jackson area. The accumulating snow should end by 8pm.

Here's an updated look at predictions from the National Weather Service and AccuWeather, broken down by municipality.
