The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids says high temperatures in Michigan made it only into the mid-30s Monday, with gusty winds adding to the chill and the difficult driving.

Shoppers sheltered in tents as they waited outside a Muskegon Best Buy store for holiday specials.

The weather service says more snow is ahead in many areas and says the Ironwood area could get 7-10 inches of accumulation through Tuesday because of the lake effect.

We are transitioning to a completely new logo, as part of a site-wide redesign aimed at furthering our mission of unlocking and sharing vast amounts of weather data with as many people as possible using the latest digital technologies, in a way that is visually appealing and engaging. We kept the colors and vibrancy of the rainbow but replaced the rainbow shape with the letters "WU"; a raindrop over the "U" represents rain falling into a rain gauge, a nod to our incredible Personal Weather Station (PWS) community (34,000 strong!)
