Snow, Sleet, and Freezing Rain to impact Southeast Michigan through Tonight

Snow, Sleet and Freezing Rain to impact Southeast Michigan through Tonight.

 A low pressure system will lift from the Central Plains today through the Ohio Valley tonight.  Meanwhile, arctic high pressure centered north of the state will keep conditions at the surface primarily at or below freezing.  An expanding area of warm and moist air will surge northeast of the low and over the colder surface conditions. This will bring a wintry mix of precipitation across the Metro Detroit region south to the Ohio Border, while mainly snow will affect Flint, Saginaw, Midland, and the Thumb region.   Precipitation will continue through tonight and may be heavy at times.  The potential exists for this system to bring heavy snow and/or significant icing to portions of the area.
