WNEM TV5 meteorologists are tracking the latest winter storm to trek into our region.

The Winter Storm Warning continues for the entire viewing area until 10 p.m., when a Wind Chill Warning will take over as the cold air sweeps in Monday. "Then we'll be the coldest we've been in years," said TV5 weathercaster Eric Jylha.

"Mid-Michigan will have a short break in the snowfall Sunday late morning, but don't be fooled, as the pace of the snow increases this afternoon and evening at a rate of an inch an hour in some areas," said Jylha.

With a break in the snow, here's what fell over a 14 hour period of time: Owosso is the leader at 6.6 inches, Flint has 4.8 inches, Saginaw 2.6 inches and Bay City at 2.0 inches, not including drifting of the snow on the ground.

The forecast calls for approximately 8-10 inches of snowfall in the Tri-Cities, 8-10 inches in Flint, 9-11 inches in the Thumb and 2-4 inches in the northern portion of Mid-Michigan

"Be prepared, this is a serious weather event," said Jylha. "Especially the cold air after the storm and the strong winds along the way."

  • Sunday: Snow and breezy, falling temp.
  • Monday:  Very cold. High of 3.
