Winter Storm hits Mid Michigan

Posted: Updated:

A Winter storm has moved into Mid-Michigan.  This same storm is causing serious problems throughout the nation's midsection.

The storm dumped snow and sleet through Illinois and Arkansas, while spawning tornadoes in the deep south.

The storm is being blamed for three deaths.  It's also left millions stranded who are trying to get home after the holiday.

Hundreds of flights have been delayed.  All flights out of Flint Bishop and MBS in Freeland are on time.

TV5 Meteorologist Doug Moats's forecast calls for a strong low pressure system to bring snow and breezy conditions through Thursday morning.  Accumulations will be highest in the Thumb with 3 to 5 inches possible.

Genesee and Shiawassee counties will see about 2 to 4 inches.  Snow totals will be less in the northern part of the region.  The Tri-cities can expect about 1 to 3 inches.

Winds will be at around 10 to 20 miles per hour with higher gusts causing blowing and drifting snow.  Roads will be slick from the snow, but there will also be visibility issues.
