Lake-effect snow showers will continue into the early morning Tuesday. The heaviest snow bands at 10 p.m. Monday were generally

west and south of Grand Rapids.

West winds of 15-20 mph will create blowing snow and occasional whiteouts. Wind chills of 5 to -15 and additional accumulations of 1-3 inches are expected


Travel is hazardous due to the occasional whiteouts and icy roads. Numerous slide-offs have been reported Monday and Monday night.

Frost bite to exposed skin is possible after just 30 minutes outside, the National Weather Service says. If you're planning to venture

outdoors, use commonsense and dress warmly. Make sure as much skin as possible is covered.

The Michigan Department of Transportation reminds motorists to adjust speeds based on the conditions, and to take it slow in ice and snow.
