Winter Weather Advisory leads to snowy & slow AM commute

- A winter weather advisory runs until 7 p.m. Tuesday for all of southeast Michigan. Snow and blowing snow might slow you down on the roads throughout the day.

Your morning commute may be less than ideal as crews clear the snow that's fallen overnight. Steady light snow will shift to the east through the morning, but showers will remain off and on through the day.

Low pressure lifts from mid Michigan to the northeast and drags a cold front through southeast Michigan over the next couple hours. Cold air pouring in over Lake Michigan behind that front will lead to lake effect snow showers for the remainder of the day. Lake effect tends to mean lower coverage (fewer of us will see the snow compared to early this morning), but they're quite impactful where they land. Limited visibility and fresh accumulation up to an inch will be possible.

The wind gusting in the 35-40 mph range today will whip the snow around, so blowing and drifting snow might slow you down on the roads even when it's not snowing.
