SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -
Another strong winter storm moving through the Midwest this week is expected to bring up to 9 inches of snow in parts of Mid-Michigan.
TV5 Meteorologist Catherine Bodak's forecast calls for a pleasant Monday, as a mix of sun and clouds allows temperatures to climb into the mid/upper 30s.
A winter storm will approach the area Tuesday, as a low pressure lifts into the Ohio Valley. This moisture rich system will reach Mid-Michigan by Tuesday afternoon and has the potential to drop several inches of snow by the time it leaves the area on Wednesday.
Temperatures will be hovering around the freezing mark, so it's likely the snow will be heavy and wet. At this point, it looks like there is the potential for 5 to 9 inches of new snow accumulation. There is also the possibility for the snow to mix with rain and this could significantly reduce snowfall totals.
As a result of the upcoming storm, the following counties are under a Winter Storm Watch until 6 a.m. Wednesday morning: Bay, Midland, Saginaw, Isabella, Gladwin, Clare, Shiawassee, Gratiot, Genesee, Lapeer, Sanilac, Tuscola and Huron.
Regardless, it will make for some hazardous driving conditions during the event. There remains some variability in the track of the storm system, so stay tuned for updates from the First Warn 5 weather team.
