Michigan is facing more snow, dangerously cold temperatures and hazardous driving conditions, leading several school districts to cancel classes Thursday.
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. Warming centers are opening in Delta Township, near Lansing.
TV stations WDIV and WXYZ say at least 15 Detroit-area districts and schools canceled classes Thursday,
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.
Locally, TV5 Meteorologist Doug Moats says wind chill advisories will remain in effect for all of mid-Michigan throughout the day on Thursday.
Highs on Thursday are only expected to reach 10 degrees as the stretch of bitterly cold weather continues.
Scattered light snow and snow flurries are expected late Thursday. Most of the area will see 1-2" by Friday morning, but there will be locally higher amounts, especially from lake enhancement.
Stay safe and be warm!
