DETROIT (AP) -

A winter storm could bring a foot of wet, heavy snow to parts of Michigan's Lower Peninsula.

The National Weather Service says a storm system is moving Wednesday into the state, bringing rain that's expected to change into snow. The storm is expected to intensify later Wednesday and leave the highest snow amounts in the state's Thumb region.

Flint could get 8 to 12 inches. The city is facing a crisis with lead-tainted water and officials urged residents to make sure they have enough filters, cartridges and bottled water on hand.

In parts of southwestern and mid-Michigan, the weather service says 8 to 10 inches is possible. In the Detroit area, 1 to 4 inches is expected Wednesday followed by 1 to 3 inches Wednesday night and into Thursday.
