Southeast Michigan weather: How to check DTE outage map
(FOX 2) - The winter weather expected to hit Southeast Michigan this week will bring a bevy of snow, rain, sleet, or something in between - though it could be hard to predict what conditions residents will get.
The wintry mix is expected midday Wednesday, with northern communities seeing more snow and southern communities getting more rain. All of Southeast Michigan will be under a Winter Weather Watch until Thursday morning.
Conditions could make driving tricky as well as disrupting power for homeowners in the metro region. As of 5:10 p.m. DTE reported more than 1,800 field crews, while more than 14,000 customers didn't have power.
