(FOX 2) - Winter storm warnings for Metro Detroit have expired as the snow winds down.
The snow fell consistently from Wednesday morning into the evening. The system continued to move toward the Thumb, where snow will fall until about 10 p.m., and St. Clair County is under a winter storm warning until midnight Thursday.
Now that the snow is done in Metro Detroit, the concerns turn toward icy roads as temperatures drop through the night.
As of 11:30 a.m., the snow had started lightening up in northern and western parts of Oakland County, near Waterford and Commerce.
However, that's not expected to be the end of the snow for those areas.
The national weather service station based out of Detroit expects the highest accumulation of snow to fall around 2 p.m., with up to two inches falling an hour. Road conditions could get messy around then.
However, since temperatures are hovering just above freezing the accumulation may not be as severe as it could be. It could be the deciding factor behind the amount of snow we get.
Most of Metro Detroit will get between 3-6 inches.
By midnight tonight, most communities will be in that range, with only cities further south and to the east landing on the higher end of that spectrum.
Here's the expected totals by midnight for cities in Southeast Michigan
- Detroit - 5.2 inches
- Monroe - 5.1 inches
- Mount Clemens - 5.1 inches
- Ann Arbor - 4.8 inches
- Pontiac - 4.7 inches
- Port Huron - 4.9 inches
- Lapeer - 4 inches
