Roads are slippery as a winter storm pushes across southern Michigan.
The National Weather Service says as of early Wednesday 1 to 2 inches of fresh snow is on the ground in the Detroit and Grand Rapids areas. Snow from the storm is expected to end by early afternoon.
Totals of 5 to 8 inches area expected in three counties along the Indiana and Ohio state lines. The weather service issued a winter storm warning for St. Joseph, Branch and Hillsdale counties through Wednesday afternoon including Coldwater, Hillsdale and Three Rivers.
Monroe and Lenawee counties could get 4 to 6 inches. Lesser amounts are expected in areas farther north.
Here at home, TV5 Meteorologist Doug Moats says several inches of snow fell on the area overnight and Wednesday morning. Most of the area saw around 2-4" of snow, but regions to the south and along the I-69 corridor had as much as 3-5" of fresh snow.
Roads will be snow covered and slick on Wednesday morning. Temperatures will be in the middle 20s on Wednesday. However, much colder air will work is way back into Mid-Michigan on Thursday. High temperatures on both Thursday and Friday will only be in the teens.
The weather service says unseasonably cold weather will follow, with lows dipping below zero in many areas Thursday night and Friday.
