A pre-winter storm has brought snow to much of Michigan, dropping up to 6 inches in northern parts of the state and leaving a dusting in the Detroit area.

The National Weather Service says that as of Tuesday morning radar estimates showed parts of Antrim County in the northwestern Lower Peninsula area saw 5-6 inches. In parts of the Upper Peninsula, the weather service reported at least 5-6 inches fell.

Slippery roads caused crashes on many roads in Michigan. The Lansing State Journal reports a woman died following a series of collisions on Interstate 96 near Webberville. The Ingham County sheriff's department says an overpass was coated with ice.

In Detroit, a dusting of snow was on the ground Tuesday. The western Lower Peninsula had a few inches in places.

Closer to home, TV5 Meteorologist Doug Moats says winds will continue to be breezy through Tuesday morning.  This system will break down and a stable weather pattern will settle over the area.  Temperatures will gradually warm and highs will be in the upper 40s and low 50s by the end of the week.
