First Warn 5

Snow and strong winds continue

Posted: Updated:
The winter storm has continued into the early morning hours on Monday with moderate to heavy snow across most of Mid-Michigan. Blowing and drifting snow is presenting hazards on and off the roads. Travel during early Monday morning will be difficult, so use extra caution and give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination.

A WINTER STORM WARNING remains in effect for Genesee, Lapeer, Sanilac, and Shiawassee Counties until 7:00 AM Monday.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect for all other areas EXCLUDING Alcona County until 6:00 AM Monday.

Snowfall totals will range widely from north to south across the region by the time the storm comes to a close. Much of Genesee, Lapeer, Sanilac, and Shiawassee Counties will wind up with 7"-12" of snow. Areas around the Tri-Cities, Thumb, and Mount Pleasant should wind up with anywhere between 4"-9". Farther north, 2"-4" or less is expected along much of the M-55 Corridor and northern I-75.

Biting cold will also be a big factor, with lows hovering in the low teens and single-digits. Winds out of the NNE will be sustained between 20-30 mph, gusting as high as 35 mph. This will push wind chills down well below zero.

Clearing skies will take over on Monday after a few lingering snow showers in the morning. Temperatures will not rebound much either, with highs only reaching the low and middle teens. Much of the upcoming week, in fact, will be seen with below-average temperatures, but largely quiet weather.
