Weather service meteorologists also issued a warning expiring Thursday morning for high winds and some snow for cities including Detroit, Ann Arbor, Flint and Pontiac.

Colder weather has moved into the state. The Michigan Department of Transportation is cautioning motorists to drive carefully and slowly.
