Michigan faces more snow, dangerously cold temperatures

Posted: Updated:

Michigan is facing more snow, dangerously cold temperatures and hazardous driving conditions.

The National Weather Service says the cold is expected to continue through the week. On Wednesday morning, it was 11 degrees below zero in Sault Ste. Marie and 7 below in Iron Mountain.

It was 8 degrees in Detroit and 6 in Grand Rapids and Lansing. Winds made it feel colder, however.

The weather service says parts of the Upper Peninsula could see 4 to 11 inches of fresh snow through Friday night. Authorities closed M-28 Tuesday night between Marquette and Munising due to high winds and poor road conditions.

Along parts of Lake Michigan in the Lower Peninsula, 3 to 8 inches could fall through Friday. School closings are reported Wednesday in areas including Jackson and Holland.

Here at home, TV5 Meteorologist Lauren Fahrenkrug says wind chill advisories are once again in effect for all of mid-Michigan. Temperatures are in the single digits and wind chill values are as low as -15 degrees in many areas. 

Highs Wednesday should only be near 10 degrees so the bitter stretch of weather continues.

There have been a few lake effect bands of snow and the area can expect scattered snow showers and flurries. Where there is snow, there will be slippery roads and poor visibilities. Be extra cautious while commuting as there are many icy spots from the past few rounds of snow.

The cold temperatures continue overnight and the next batch of snow arrives on Thursday evening.
