Road conditions are quickly deteriorating in Northern Michigan. Temperatures are falling fast, with everyone hovering right near freezing. We'll continue to cool down today, and are already seeing rain change to snow. Currently, the rain/snow line falls roughly from Ludington to Rogers City, with snow mainly north, and rain south. Pockets of freezing rain are mixing in both north and south of that line.

By 5pm, we can expect temperatures to be in the 20's, with some even in the teens. Rain will have all changed over into snow, with some freezing rain remaining.

A winter storm warning is in effect for Luce county through 7am tomorrow. Luce county in particular can expect to see 6-9" or more of new snow through tomorrow, with heaviest later this afternoon and evening.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Chippewa, Mackinac, Emmet, Cheboygan, Charlevoix, Antrim, Otsego, Leelanau, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Manistee, and Wexford counties. These areas will see a mix of freezing rain and snow through the morning, with snow accumulations reaching 3-6" or more by tomorrow morning. Again, heaviest snow will fall later this afternoon and evening.

Expect much colder temperatures and lake effect snow to add additional accumulations throughout the area for both Thursday and Friday.
