Snow and blowing snow will slow Christmas Day travel

Winter Weather Advisory For Metro Holiday Weekend

Snow, sleet and freezing rain may be seen to the north, though rain is mainly expected in the city and points south, CBS2's Elise Finch reported.

The snow began falling about 1 p.m. and is expected to continue to fall until the advisory ends at 11 p.m., according to AccuWeather.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Ionia, Clinton, Shiawassee, Barry, Eaton, Ingham, Livingston, Calhoun, Jackson and Washtenaw Counties through 7 P.M. Additional snowfall and blowing snow will slow travel across the area today. And some of those lake-effect snow showers could lead to a few snow squalls, especially in areas from I-69 and southward.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is active for much of northern Ohio.

"These snow squalls will have the chance to produce near white out conditions, and localized accumulations up to 1-2". Gusty winds could also cause some visibility issues on the roads.

As if the blowing and drifting snow wasn't enough from that wind, bitterly cold wind chills will be settling in as well.

Light to moderate snow will taper off early in the day. Colder air settles in today with temperatures dropping into the low teens by late afternoon and wind chills near zero. Temperatures tonight drop to the single digits with wind chills near -10.
