The region could see up to 3 inches of snow, and some of it will come while people are still making their way home from work, forecasters noted.
Roads can turn slick with only a small amount of snow when temperatures are falling, and that was a factor in the decision to issue an advisory for Monday evening, the weather service's Grand Rapids station said.
The heaviest snow is likely to fall north of a line from Grand Haven to Jackson. Areas from Lansing west are more likely to be impacted, with areas east of Lansing likely to get smaller amounts, forecasters said.
Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s on Monday night.
Highs will gradually rise into the mid-40s by Thursday, the weather service said.
