Parts of Michigan could see up to 20 inches of snow
Most of Michigan is seeing measurable snow on Monday -- some areas more than others.
Here’s a look at what is being forecasted across the state:
We have light snow around during the early morning hours and it will get heavier at times today creating very tricky travel conditions. Most of Metro Detroit is in a Winter Weather Advisory for 3-6” of snow creating dangerous travel all day today and it lasts until midnight. Parts of the thumb in our North Zone are under a Winter Storm Warning for 5-10” of snow and blowing snow.
Huron County, including Bad Axe, could see up to 20 inches of snow.
Heavy lake effect snow is expected tonight into Tuesday in the north to northwest wind belts. Rapid drops in visibility and difficult driving conditions are expected. Snowfall rates in excess of 2 inches per hour are possible making snow removal efforts difficult. Here’s a look at how much snow may fall in the bands.
Two rounds of wintry weather are expected, the first starting tonight. Light snow is expected mainly along and south of I-96 with a slippery Mon AM commute likely. Lake effect snow ramps up late Mon into Tue. Stay tuned to the forecast, and plan ahead for slippery roads! #wmiwx pic.twitter.com/90y0zrjoFr— NWS Grand Rapids (@NWSGrandRapids) November 10, 2019
Northern Lower Michigan
The heavy lake effect snow will continue tonight into Tuesday morning. Watch as the winds shift and the heavier snow amounts move from the Lake Michigan shore to east of Traverse City.
Highest totals are in Grand Traverse County, with 4-6 inches expected.
Light snow tonight will transition to heavy lake effect snow by Monday. Most of the lake effect will be near west of Traverse City, during the day, but shift east for Monday night. The lake effect snow will continue Tuesday into Tuesday night. pic.twitter.com/ilMR43oK9f— NWS Gaylord (@NWSGaylord) November 10, 2019
