2/7/2019 -- Another round of rain and freezing rain is on the way to Mid-Michigan for Thursday.
There is a Winter Weather Advisory in place for Mid-Michigan until 7pm Thursday; the Advisory for the Thumb and Tri-Cities regions are set to expire at 1 pm.
Freezing rain may not impact our morning commute (5 am to 8 am), but drivers will need to use extra caution during the late morning and afternoon hours around Mid-Michigan.
Roads are slippery even without any precipitation falling, so you need to take care on the morning commute north of I-69.

Temperatures are expected to warm enough during the early afternoon that freezing rain will turn over to rain in the Tri-Cities area and the Thumb region.
Freezing rain is expected to continue to fall north of the Tri-Cities for the remainder of the afternoon, but could finally switch over to rain for the early evening before showers come to an end.
The I-69 Corridor will have the lowest chance of freezing rain while our western and northern communities will see the greatest ice accumulation in Mid-Michigan.
Following an icy and wet Thursday, strong winds and diving temperatures will move into Mid-Michigan producing subzero wind chills for Friday.
Drivers are urged to allow for extra travel time and to anticipate slick conditions.

A Wind Advisory is in effect from 7pm Thursday night through 7am Friday morning.
Strong wind gusts in the 40 mph range will impact ice coated trees and power lines and may cause a few outages throughout the region.
Plan ahead for the subzero wind chills, power outage chance, and the icy roads that take over Thursday night.
