Winter weather advisory in effect until noon Saturday

4 Live Radar is tracking our evening snow as it moves into southeast Michigan. 

Flakes will fall first in our West Zone, then quickly spread across the entire area.  Snow will be more or less continuous through the night, with some heavy bursts after midnight. 

Temperatures will be rising overnight to the mid and upper 20s by daybreak.

We should be mainly dry for the first part of Saturday, with another surge of moisture (but lighter) arriving in the afternoon.  With temperatures slightly above freezing in the southern half of the area, this will fall as a mix of precipitation, including light freezing rain. 

It should not be enough to cause significant issues, but expect some slick spots tomorrow afternoon.

Then during the evening, an additional burst of light snow arrives for everyone, bringing snow totals to 3-7 inches... lowest numbers in our South Zone, highest in our North Zone, and northern West Zone.

Sunday will be colder and dry.  In fact most of Christmas week will be that way; but even with a mini, midweek spike, it looks like what’s on the ground will stay there through the 25th.
