How are the roads in Metro Detroit? The FOX 2 Weather Beast is out checking conditions
Give yourself extra time Friday morning, as roads across Metro Detroit are snow covered after a snowstorm that started Thursday.
DETROIT (FOX 2) - Plows are out clearing roads after this week's snowstorm.
The MiDrive map shows a plow's location, a snapshot of the area, and whether the truck is plowing or applying material.
It also shows the name of the plow. Michiganders had the chance to offer name suggestions for MDOT plows. Snowy Robinson and Lake Scooperior are just some of the trucks you'll see out handling the roads.

There are other plows that will be working and not featured on the map because it only includes state plows.

Cold and Breezy Friday
Take it slow, safe and easy as you are heading out on the roadways this morning. We picked up on average between 5 to 7 inches of snow. Thankfully, most of today should stay dry. Tonight; however, a quick moving clipper system may bring an additional 0.25" to 0.50" of snowfall overnight into early Saturday morning. By Sunday, temperatures should start to thaw with highs in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees.
