Winter storm watches to go into effect in SE Michigan

DETROIT – The National Weather Service says winter storm watches will go into effect Tuesday night for all of southeast Michigan.

The watches will be in effect through Wednesday morning for Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Monroe and St. Clair counties.

NWS says rain will transition to snow, which could be heavy at times, with possible accumulation of around 6 inches.

The highest accumulations are expected south of Detroit and Ann Arbor.

Winds will also be a concern. Gusts could reach more than 30 mph, which would cause blowing and drifting of snow.
