Michigan gets first real test of winter

Over the weekend, Southeast Michigan got its first winter blast but it's going to continue all week with snow already starting to pile up in Detroit.

On Saturday, Metro Detroit received about an inch of snow and on Monday, even more pulled in. By the time it's all said and done, we could see between 1 and and 3 inches of snow by Tuesday morning.

Will schools be closed on Tuesday? We don't know the answer to that yet but we're tracking them at fox2detroit.com/closings

It's not much different than what we saw on Saturday, but due to the higher number of people on the roads, it will be more risky.

The snow started around 9:45 in Southfield and by 11:30, multiple accidents were reported across southeast Michigan.

Eastbound I-94 at Wayne - all lanes closed. Northbound I-75 at Sashabaw - all lanes were closed around 11:30 - by noon, they were reopened. Eastbound M-14 at Miller Rd in Ann Arbor closed. 696 at M-10 - the left lane is closed. 

At the same time, MSP is conducting an investigation on M-94 at Conner Street in Detroit.
