Wet, heavy snow blanketed portions of the region late this morning. Add in a bit of freezing rain and light rain showers, and you have the makings of a bad weather day.

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 4pm for Washtenaw and Wayne Counties.  Snowfall totals could exceed two inches and ice accumulation could reach a tenth of an inch. that makes for potentially slippery and hazardous road and sidewalk conditions, so caution is advised. 

Snowstorm Snarls Travel

Dec 26, 2012

While much of southeast Michigan was spared the full punch of a widespread winter storm, at least three inches of snow had fallen in Washtenaw County as of 8pm Wednesday, causing difficult travel throughout the  region.

While county snow plows and salt trucks have been out on the roads since mid-afternoon, the snow has persisted, making for dangerous driving conditions in most areas.  Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies reported numerous accidents and spinouts throughout the day and into the evening, and continue to advise people to stay off the roads if at all possible.
