Winter Storm to Blow Through Southern Lower Michigan

Northern Michigan will be spared high snow totals today, but anyone driving south might want to rethink their travel plans. Forecasters say a winter storm expected to blow through the state will drop at least 6 inches of snow on parts of southern lower Michigan and limit visibility as plunging temperatures keep roadways slick. The National Weather Service says snow will begin falling Thursday morning in the southwestern part of the state before pushing into metro Detroit by mid-afternoon and ending early Friday morning. The Grand Rapids area is expected to receive at least 4 to 6 inches of snow. Between 2 and 4 inches are expected in metro Detroit, with heavier amounts closer to the Ohio border. Temperatures are expected to plunge into the teens Thursday night. No weekend snow is forecast, but high temperatures are expected stay in the 20s through Sunday. That's about 10 degrees below normal. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
