A pre-winter snowstorm continues to grip parts of Michigan, with accumulations already topping 9 inches in the state's southeastern corner.

The National Weather Service says snow was falling at most of its Michigan reporting points at 6 p.m. Sunday, with temperatures ranging from minus 2 at Ironwood in the western Upper Peninsula to 22 at Beaver Island in Lake Michigan and at Ypsilanti in southeastern lower Michigan.

The weather service says the storm has dropped 9.1 inches of snow at Newport in Monroe County, 8.7 inches at Morenci in Lenawee County and 8.4 inches at the Wayne County community of Wyandotte south of Detroit.

State police say they've handled at least 85 crashes in southeastern Michigan alone, plus many other assist calls.

So far, no serious injuries have been reported.

TV5 Meteorologist Catherine Bodak says scattered snow showers are in the forecast Monday with highs only in the upper teens. Low pressure will bring our next round of widespread snow Monday night. 1 to 2 inches of new snow is expected by Tuesday morning.

  • Monday:  Scattered snow.  High of 19.
  • Tuesday:  Light snow. High of 30.
  • Wednesday:  Mostly Cloudy.  High of 31.
  • Thursday:  Rain/snow. High of 35.
  • Friday: Partly cloudy. High of 39.
  • Saturday: Mostly cloudy. High of 26.
