SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Another winter storm is heading to the area, with up to at least 6 inches of snow forecast for parts of Mid-Michigan.

The National Weather Service says snowfall is expected to start Monday afternoon in western Michigan, with 4 to 6 inches of snow anticipated by the time it wraps up Tuesday.

Here in Mid-Michigan, TV5 Meteorologist Catherine Bodak says the next system to impact Mid Michigan will track into the northern Ohio Valley region Monday evening.

The associated snow will become widespread and heavy at times, especially during the evening hours to just after midnight.

Watch for slick travel and reduced visibly. The snow will taper off early Tuesday morning leaving behind accumulations between 3 and 6 inches. Locally higher amounts will be possible.

Mid-Michigan remains under a Winter Weather Advisory until 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Warmer temperatures will arrive Tuesday, and rain is in the forecast for Thursday. The milder air and wet weather could lead to melting snow, flooding problems, slushy travel, and dense fog.

The Detroit area could get 3 to 6 inches Monday. The snow could affect the Monday evening commute.

In the northern Lower Peninsula, 3 to 5 inches of snow is forecast, with higher amounts possible locally.

The Upper Peninsula also is expected to get clipped by the snowstorm, with 3 to 5 inches of snow possible across the western and central U.P.

Warmer weather is expected Tuesday through Thursday in parts of the state.
