First Warn 5 Weathercast: Icy Mix On Tuesday 1-12-2011

Mid-Michigan’s latest winter storm had not been about just snow.
For the first time this season, we’ve inherited enough warm air to have a brush with sleet and freezing rain, making roads extra slushy Tuesday morning.
During the rest of the morning, any icy mix will transition back to snow; another trace to 2 inches will fall before tapering off by noon.
TV5 Meteorologist Mike Cameron says storm totals will range in total between 1”-6”.
Make sure you shovel your driveway and sidewalks by the end of today. After the snow winds down to just flurries this afternoon, temperatures will slowly slide into the upper-20s – and then, as the sun sets, temperatures will fall precipitously into the single digits.
The rapid temperature drop will freeze the slush solid.
Once the temperatures turn frigid tonight, the stay cold for the rest of the week.
Today: Snow, possibly mixed with freezing rain and sleet before 7am, then snow, possibly mixed with rain and freezing rain between 7am and 10am, then snow after 10am.
Temperature falling to around 30 by 5pm. South wind between 7 and 10 mph becoming calm. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. Total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.
Tonight: A 30 percent chance of snow showers. Cloudy, with a low around 8. Wind chill values as low as -2. North wind between 9 and 13 mph.
Wednesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 18. Wind chill values as low as -2. North northwest wind between 6 and 9 mph.
Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around -1. West northwest wind between 4 and 7 mph becoming calm.
A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet, and freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
