NWS: Accumulating snow to impact the area



Tonight’s weather story from the National Weather Service:

Accumulating snow to impact the area

(November 20, 2015) – Light snow will move into lower Michigan late this evening and slowly expand into Saturday across the remainder of the area. The heaviest snow is expected to fall in the Winter Weather Advisory area where 4 to 7 inches of snow is generally expected starting this evening and continuing into Saturday evening. As you go further southeast, warmer temperatures and the potential for rain mixing with the snow will help keep amounts down.

The location for the heaviest snow still remains somewhat uncertain as the low continues to develop. The forecasted amounts above may change as we approach the main portion of the event on Saturday.

Roads may initially be wet, but will have slushy snow accumulations in heavier snow bands as well as when the colder air arrives Saturday afternoon. Allow extra time to reach your destination.

  • Light snow tonight in southern lower Michigan, expanding across the area early Saturday morning
  • Mix of rain possible south of US-24 early Saturday afternoon
  • Roads will become slushy and slippery, especially Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening
  • Lake effect snow expected Saturday evening
