Much of the Tri-Cities region is under a wind advisory Monday as wind gusts are expected to exceed 40 mph.
The advisory is expected to last until 10 p.m. Monday. The wind advisory is in effect for Bay, Saginaw, Huron, Tuscola, Sanilac, Lapeer, Genesee, Midland, Shiawassee, Gratiot, Isabella, Clare and Gladwin counties.
TV5 Meteorlogist Catherine Bodak's forecast for Monday calls for the early morning rain to change to scattered snow in the afternoon as temperatures steadily drop into the 30s. It will also be a VERY windy day with gusts in the 40s and low 50s.
Northern Michigan will be colder, and a winter weather advisory is being issued for counties north of the Tri-Cities.
As temperatures drop, the precipitation will turn over to snow showers, and areas north of the Tri-Cities could see some accumulation.
The National Weather Service says icy roads and high winds could cause problems in parts of Michigan.
In the northern Lower Peninsula, travel conditions are slippery after rainfall froze. Caution was urged Monday.
Dozens of Michigan school districts canceled classes, in part due to icy roads.
Across the southern Lower Peninsula, wind gusts up to 45 mph are forecast starting around midday. Gusts up to 50 mph are possible along Lake Michigan. The winds could knock down trees and push snow and ice from rooftops following earlier storms.
A flood warning is in effect through Wednesday afternoon for the Grand River in Ottawa County's Robinson Township following flooding last week due to ice jams.
Michigan's Upper Peninsula is expected to get snow Monday as a storm moves through the area.
