TV5 Meteorologist: Winter Storm Will Be A Doozy 2-01-2011

The largest snow storm of the season is on its way.
Heavy snow and wind will bring blizzard conditions to much of Mid-Michigan, starting Tuesday night and lasting into Wednesday morning.
Slideshow: Latest Snow Predictor Forecast
Blizzard warnings for Saginaw, the Thumb and the I-69 corridor are already in effect, as are winter storm warnings for Bay and Midland counties.
Wednesday morning’s commute will be particularly tough. Snow will be falling a rate of 1”-3” and hour at a time the wind will be howling, reducing visibilities to near zero.
Heavy snow accumulations and snow drifts will make roadways extremely difficult to navigate.

Snow will slowly wind down tomorrow afternoon. Final accumulations will range between 8” and 12” in the Tri-Cities, US-127 corridor and Thumb -- and exceed 1 foot along I-69.
Good luck trying to measure the snow, however. Wind will continue to blow the snow into drifts tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night.
Right now, the storm is over the southern and central Plains, bringing heavy snow, ice and cold as far south as the Texas Hill Country -- a true sign of this storm’s intensity.
Also, don't forget to upload your winter snap shots to our online slideshow, some images could be used in an upcoming newscast.
