Meanwhile, wet conditions with temps near 20 degrees will keep roadways slick and slippery. Two counties, Washtenaw and Wayne, have been issued special weather statements for bands of heavier lake effect snow.

That means the counties could see a burst of moderate to briefly heavy snowfall, according to the National Weather Service. Some areas could see 1 inch of snow an hour.
