LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)—The Storm Tracker 6 Weather team is tracking a major snowstorm that will move into Mid-Michigan starting Monday evening.
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the majority of the area, learn more about that warning here.
“Travel will be very difficult tonight into Tuesday. Blowing and drifting will cause roads that have been cleared to become snow-covered in spots even after the snow stops Tuesday morning.,” said 6 News Chief Meteorologist David Young.
MONDAY – Snow tapers off early and most of Monday looks dry.
MONDAY NIGHT – After 5 pm snow will begin to move in from the south. Road conditions should be ok until late this evening. Snow is likely and some could be heavy. Snowfall rates could exceed an inch per hour! Wind will cause blowing and drifting of snow. Travel is discouraged.
TUESDAY – Snow ends by 10 am at the latest. You can see from the snow maps that this is s significant snow. Travel will still be difficult during the day. Blowing and drifting is still likely.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON – Dry weather but still some blowing and drifting. I would imagine that MDOT will have a decent handle on main roads. Secondary roads will most likely still be very snowy. Even roads that are cleared could have snow blowing back onto them.
THURSDAY – There’s still a fair amount of error possible this far out but we could very well be dealing with a similar system on Thursday with more heavy snow possible. Stay tuned!
