Snowy Tuesday Evening Commute

A low pressure system passing south of Michigan will bring widespread accumulating snow to southern and central Lower Michigan this afternoon and tonight.  With the storm system tracking across central Ohio by mid day and Buffalo New York by early Wednesday morning the heaviest snowfall will be south and east of Interstate 69.  The snow should diminish after midnight as the storm departs the area.

The snow will develop in all areas by early afternoon, with the bulk of the total accumulations falling from mid afternoon into early this evening. Be prepared for a snowy evening commute with slippery roads and reduced visibilities.  Major Interstates which will be impacted include I-94, I-96, I-196, and I-69.  The area near Interstate 69 will have the greatest impacts since the snow will be falling heaviest in that area.   Travel along these routes is expected to be slower than normal for the evening commute due to slides offs and accidents possible during the peak travel time.  The storm should actually be at its peak between 4 PM and 8 PM, which corresponds with the evening commute.

Below is an image showing the expected snow accumulations for through early Wednesday morning.
