Freezing rain overnight: what to expect Wednesday morning

Another bout of winter weather has headed our way tonight. 

A round of freezing rain began late Tuesday night. Hundreds of schools are closed Wednesday, including Detroit Public Schhols due to the ice. You can see the school and business closures here

If you're out driving early Wednesday morning, expect slow travels. Take extra caution on bridges, exit ramps and overpasses. 

DTE Energy says they've prepared for possible power outages and will have more than 2,500 employees and contractors ready if needed. 

A winter weather advisory went into effect 1 a.m. Wednesday and will last through the morning commute. Ice totals look right now to be about a tenth of an inch, and should taper off in the afternoon as temps warm up. The advisory expires at 1 p.m.

A second system may bring a bit of freezing rain late Wednesday night and Thursday morning, but our temperatures should warm above freezing fairly quickly through the day which will make it less of a mess than what's on the way tonight. Just be cautious of some slick spots tomorrow morning as well. 

Temps will be back into the upper 40s on Thursday before things will cool back down again Friday and for the weekend.
