Schools canceling classes & events for Friday March 2

With a huge snow storm bearing down on Southeast Michigan, several school districts canceled classes and events Friday before school was even let out - and many more are expected to follow suit.

Thursday's storm turned from rain to snow around noon. With huge flakes flying, we could see between 3 and 6 inches of snow with 7 or even 8 not being out of the question.

Get the complete closing list here:

Most of southeast Michigan is under a Winter Weather Advisory, with Livingston and Oakland counties under a Winter Storm Warning. That means those counties are expected to see more snow.  

By 4 p.m., everyone is seeing snow, just in time for the commute.

This is going to be wet, sloppy, slushy snow - so it should be a lot of fun to drive home in.

Northern communities like Flint and Lapeer should see about 5 in of show. Eastern communities like Port Huron and Mt. Clemens will see about 2-3 inches. The hardest hit areas will be, like we said, in Oakland and Livingston counties where 5-7 inches is expected.

The good news is that we'll be above freezing the next day and around 40 for highs for the next week so the snow shouldn't stick around for too long.
