The National Weather Service says local additional accumulations of an inch or two are possible as temperatures fall into the lower 20s this evening. Wind gusts will diminish to 35 mph tonight after gusting past 50 mph today.

Challenging driving conditions with icy roads, high winds and visibilities reduced to a car length at times will persist, but are expected to improve by this evening. Authorities urge drivers to take it slow in areas of blowing snow and low visibilities.

There have been a few isolated power outages today as a result of falling branches from the wind gusts.

The forecast for the Grand Haven area:

Tonight: Snow showers likely before 7 pm, then a chance for flurries. Partly cloudy, with a low around 21. Windy, with a west-southwest wind 21 to 31 mph, with gusts as high as 45 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than a half-inch possible.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a steady temperature around 24. Breezy, with a west wind around 22 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Well, I guess there's a price to be paid for that picture perfect summer we had last year.
