…Light lake effect snow showers to move well inland and hamper travel…

Lake effect snow showers will continue to move across much of far southwest Lower Michigan and northern Indiana today. Drifting snow will likely hamper travel over rural and open roads. Additional snow accumulations should be less than an inch except for areas close to Lake Michigan where around an inch is likely. If you are
traveling today, allow extra time to reach your destination. Watch out for very slippery conditions on secondary roads.
