(April 8, 2016) – Scattered rain and snow showers will continue through sunset, eventually changing to all snow. A band of snow is expected to setup somewhere across southern Lower Michigan, northeastern Indiana and northwestern Ohio this evening with a quick burst of light to moderate snowfall occurring. The map shows the potential total accumulation through 2 am EDT for the area with amounts likely to vary over small distances.
Overnight, the main snow bands will shift off to the east with a northwest flow off Lake Michigan causing lake effect snow showers for the remainder of the night into early Saturday. Light accumulations are possible downwind of the lake. Temperatures will fall into the 23 to 26 degree range, which could cause some damage to budding trees.
