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:

Southeast Michigan

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.

West Michigan

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.

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.

Upper Peninsula

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Marquette and Southern Schoolcraft counties. Highest totals will likely be in Munising, Grand Marais and Newberry, with up to 18 inches of snow possible by Tuesday morning.
