Much of S. Lower Michigan has seen 1-2″ of snowfall, enough to cause slick spots on area roads. Here’s what the G.R. NWS says: “Light snow will d taper off by midnight. Accumulations will range in most areas from 1 to 2 inches. A 3-inch amount cannot be ruled out, especially towards I-94.” With temperatures close to the freezing mark, this has been a wet, heavy, slushy type of snow. With the help of a little salt, main roads should be mainly wet. Watch for icy spots on sidewalks, parking lots, driveways and lesser traveled roads, esp. north of G.R. where temperatures will be a couple degrees cooler.
No advisories for Lower Michigan. However, advisories have been issued for NW Indiana, N. Illinois and most of the state of Wisconsin.
