It may not be a lot of snow, but we're getting a bit of winter weather still this April morning. It's causing some problems on the roads, too. 

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for all of southeast Michigan until 10 a.m. Tuesday. That means to expect extremely icy roads this morning, as the wet roads have frozen overnight. 

Temperatures will hover around freezing this morning, but feels like low 20s and even in the teens in some northern communities. Visibility will also range, depending on how thick the snow is falling. 

Shawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, St. Clair, Livingston, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw and Wayne counties are all under the advisory. 

The snow won't end up amounting to much, and will taper off later on in the morning. Some lingering, spotty showers are possible this afternoon. Meanwhile, yourself some extra time on your drive.

Right now, our temperatures are 20 degrees below average. Temperatures will be back in the 50s later on this week, making for a nicer weekend. 

Another system is heading our way, though, for Wednesday night -- which could impact your Thursday morning commute. 

Meanwhile, DTE Energy says 145,000 people are still without power after Sunday's ice storm and high winds. Nearly 400,000 customers were affected. DTE says they hope to have 90 percent of those homes back with power by the end of the day today.
