SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -
Snow fell across Mid-Michigan Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and travel conditions are still a bit treacherous as a result of the storm.
Precipitation arrived in Michigan early Tuesday and temperatures are hovering at or a few degrees above freezing.
TV5 Meteorologist Lauren Fahrenkrug said the snow overnight was heavy at times and there were a few bursts of quick accumulations. "Because there has been a lot of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the temperatures are on the warmer side for a snow event, the snow itself is heavy to shovel and may cause issues with tree branches and power lines," said Fahrenkrug.
The winter weather advisory is in effect for Alcona, Arenac, Gladwin, Gratiot, Iosco, Isabella and Ogemaw Counties.
We will continue to see moisture from this storm system linger in Mid-Michigan through Thursday, and additional minor accumulations will be possible.
TV5 Meteorologist Catherine Bodak says the low pressure will stall out over Mid Michigan Wednesday and slowly weaken as moisture continues to travel eastward. The heaviest snow has come to an end but light/moderate snow will continue through Wednesday night with an additional 1-2" of snowfall possible for most areas. As this system pulls away we will continue to see some light snowflakes linger into Thursday before high pressure ushers in dry and colder air just in time for the weekend.
