First measurable snow of season coming to Detroit Friday morning

The first measurable snow fall of the season is almost here and you know what that means: slippery roads and impatient drivers.

The system is still over Kansas and Missouri but is taking direct aim at the Mitten. The good news? Southeast Michigan will get a small amount of snow. We're talking less than an inch in most places.

While Pontiac, Howell, and Ann Arbor could see one to two inches, most of the Detroit area will see less than an inch. 

Parts west and north will see more snow while people to the south and east will see more rain.

Just be glad we're not getting what our friends in South Haven, Muskegon, and Gaylord are expected to get: they could see 4 to 6 inches. Parts of the U.P. could even get upwards of a FOOT of snow in this system.

Regardless, we're all going to get snow. And this is only the beginning of the snow season.
