Midwest Storm Clips Michigan, Bringing Snowfall
DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A major storm hitting the Midwest is clipping the state, bringing snowfall to West Michigan and parts of the Upper Peninsula.
The storm moved into Michigan on Friday, with one to two inches forecast for the Detroit area. The National Weather Service says some other areas could see 2 to 3 inches.
In places, the snow is expected to change to freezing drizzle and motorists are urged to drive with caution.
The Upper Peninsula will likely get the worst of the snow, with a possible three to five inches by the time the storm wraps up. That follows a strong storm earlier in the week that dumped more than 20 inches of snow on parts of the area, closing roads and schools.
Here’s the local forecast from the CBS Detroit Weather Team:
Friday – Overcast with snow and a chance of rain. Breezy. Winds from the ESE at 15 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 90% with accumulations up to 2 in. possible. High of 36F, low of 23F with a windchill as low as 10F.
