Peak snowfall will be in the late afternoon hours, which will surely create a messy commute home. By 5 p.m., nearly 2 inches will already be on the ground and more falling.
Plan on a much longer than usual commute this evening. A longer, safer commute is always better than an accident. Check out the latest traffic information at fox2detroit.com/traffic.
Many cities have declared a snow emergency, which means parking on neighborhood streets isn't allowed. You can see a full list of declared snow emergencies here.
After this system we don't see many major snow makers for about a week. Flurries are expected on and off but the next big winter system may arrive on Christmas Eve. We'll keep an eye on it.
