Snow is continuing to fall across Mid-Michigan and travel conditions are treacherous as a result of the storm.
Precipitation arrived in Michigan early Tuesday and temperatures are hovering at or a few degrees above freezing, we will see a few different types of precipitation.
TV5 Meteorologist Lauren Fahrenkrug said the snow overnight may be heavy at times with a few bursts of quick accumulations. Expect visibilities to be poor. "Because there has been a lot of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the temperatures are on the warmer side for a snow event, the snow itself will be heavy to shovel and may cause issues with tree branches and power lines," said Fahrenkrug.
Huron, Tuscola, and Sanilac counties will be under a winter storm warning until noon Wednesday. In general, accumulations through Wednesday evening in the warning area will range from 5-7". Locations in these counties closer to Lake Huron may see more significant snow totals, whereas locations in these counties along the Saginaw Bay will see less.
Shiawassee and Genesee counties are under a winter weather advisory until noon Wednesday. A general range of 4-6" is forecasted for these areas.
The winter weather advisory for Gratiot and Isabella counties will run until 10 a.m. Wednesday. These areas also have a forecasted range of 4-6".
Midland, Bay, and Saginaw counties will have a winter weather advisory in effect until noon Wednesday, with a 4-6" forecast.
Alcona, Arenac, Gladwin, Iosco and Ogemaw Counties are under the winter weather advisory until 11 a.m. Wednesday morning.
We will continue to see moisture from this storm system linger in Mid-Michigan through Thursday, and additional minor accumulations will be possible.
TV5 Chief Meteorologist Doug Moats says hazardous driving conditions will exist throughout the duration of the snowfall event. Drier and cooler air will move in for the end of the workweek and for the weekend.
