Freezing rain and snow will be moving into Mid-Michigan for Wednesday evening starting around 5 pm continuing through 11 pm.
There is a Winter Weather Advisory in place for all of the Lower Peninsula; the advisory will remain in place until 10 pm.
Temperatures will hover in the upper 20s and lower 30s allowing for freezing rain and snow to fall across much of the area.
The mercury will continue to gradually warm through the evening and overnight hours; eventually our freezing rain and snow showers will turn over to rain before coming to an end.
We could see some icing on area roads during the later portion of the evening commute, especially around the Tri-Cities, the Thumb region and the I-69 Corridor.
Snowfall is expected north of the Tri-Cities with only minor accumulations of less than one inch.
Ice accumulation is not expected to be heavy, but it may cause slick spots on untreated roads, sidewalks, driveways and parking lots.
Drivers should be cautious as poor driving conditions are expected through the evening.
Temperatures will continue to warm overnight, but a little dip in temperatures Thursday morning could allow for some refreeze for the commute.
