Snow Brings Area Hazardous Driving Conditions 3-11-2011

A storm has brought hazardous driving conditions to parts of Mid-Michigan and left a few inches of fresh snow on the ground in places.
The National Weather Service says parts of Michigan felt the effects of the storm Friday morning, with an inch or more on the ground as the morning commute began. The snow left slippery driving conditions in its wake and numerous weather-related spinouts and crashes were reported.
The state's Thumb area and Port Huron were expected to get the most snow. TV5 Meteorologist Mike Cameron says 6 inches could fall in that area. Winds contributed to hazardous conditions.
The Tri-Cities will see up to 1 inch of snow and 1 to 3 inches could be recorded in Genesee County.
Clouds will slowly give way to sunshine by late this afternoon and, with highs 35-40, some of the snow will melt away.
