Looks like the snow that has started will be sporadic during the day and then get more steady as we head toward the evening. Right now there is a big slot of dry air moving in so snow totals are cut and now looking at 2 inches in most places by this evening, 3 to 4 inches in isolated pockets where stray snow bands can set up north of I-96. Winds will pick up as well so there is a concern for blowing snow allowing roads to be covered and slick.
Issues begin to show up during the day tomorrow as the low moves into southwest Michigan and moves northeast. The changeover from snow to sleet will start before noon time and then move to all rain. This, along with the snowpack and fresh snow in place will cause fog is all areas. Flooding also becomes a concern as there is up to 10 inches on the ground to melt off which comes to about 1.5 inches of water. Things will progress quickly with a strong temperature gradient and we go below freezing within only a few hours. Winds will then back from the NW and another shot of arctic air hits the region. Freezing of roadways looks very probable with the ground temperature still below freezing. Expect bridges and elevated roadways to become slick and ice covered, the rain and snow melt will no doubt wash away existing road treatment.
After the passage of the low and cold air works in only flurries or isolated pockets of moderate snow are seen. Looks like southeast Michigan is going to get all forms of precipitation with this event and could get up to a quarter inch of ice.
