Glancing blow to bring accumulating snow to parts of Mid-Michigan
A storm system that will mostly stay east of the area will bring a glancing blow to Mid-Michigan.
FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - A storm system that will mostly stay east of the area will bring a glancing blow to Mid-Michigan with some areas seeing several inches of snowfall while some areas see nothing at all.
Everyone will be cold and windy, though!
Winds have prompted lakeshore flooding advisories and warnings for the bay and thumb through Tuesday afternoon – flooding and erosion is likely with large waves.
Snow showers will continue overnight and through tomorrow. For many of us along I-75 these snow showers will be sporadic and very light. Only a coating to around 1″ is likely by Tuesday morning. For those in the thumb down toward the eastern side of the I-69 corridor is where the heavier more persistent snow bands will set up. The thumb southward is under a winter weather advisory until 4pm Tuesday due to possible accumulations of 2-5+” – those higher amounts will be in the thumb and closer to Lake Huron. The further west you go, the less and less you’ll see out of this system, if you see anything at all. Most areas along the 127 corridor will stay dry.
We’ll clear out Wednesday with sunshine and highs back into the low 40s, and you can expect more of the same Thursday!
Most of the accumulation will happen late Monday and through Tuesday so that is when roadways could be slick and/or snow-covered.
Strong winds will also be felt with this system beginning Monday and lasting through Tuesday. Wind gusts could be upwards of 30 mph in from the north, northwest.
There is a higher degree of uncertainty with this storm system so changes to the forecast are possible, if not expected. Stay with the ABC12 First Alert Weather Team for updates.
