NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) -- The latest arctic blast made conditions miserable Friday evening across West Michigan.
Wind gusts as high as 50 mph whipped snow into drifts and sent wind chills plummeting below zero. Drivers had to deal with near-whiteout conditions.
On the lakeshore, visibility was especially poor at the east end of Mona Lake, where show was blowing across Seaway Drive.
Friday evening, the Muskegon County Road Commission had six plow trucks out. Road commission leaders advised that they would not be plowing the northern part of the county because the plow drivers can not see the road from the blowing snow.
The morning crew starts around 4 a.m.
