Most of Michigan is under a Winter Weather Advisory until midnight. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Sanilac St. Clair and Tuscola Counties through 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, and for Huron County until 4:00 p.m. Tuesday.
The NWS predicts light to moderate snow all day today, tapering off this evening. Exception will be across the Thumb region where heavy lake effect snow will be around tonight into Tuesday.
The NWS says this storm will bring:
• Hazardous and slick travel conditions through this evenings commute with
widely variable driving conditions, especially in the Warning areas.
• Whiteout conditions in the Thumb with lake effect snow squall activity.
Forecasters say the storm will give way to record-setting cold. National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Birk said it will make the region feel a lot more like the middle of January than the middle of November.
