Heavy snow is in the forecast Tuesday for southern Michigan, where up to 6 inches is possible for parts of Lenawee and Monroe counties, according to the national Weather Service.
Ohio could experience snow, freezing rain, and sleet Tuesday morning. Precipitation could be between a quarter and half inch.
Forecasters are citing a low pressure system that drop heavy snow in the southern part of Michigan and move northward.
The overall track of the storm system is uncertain, as is the areas that could receive a prolonged period of heavy snow.
The weather service said temperatures south of I-96 may be warm enough to change the snow over to rain, and reduce the accumulations.
In the Ann Arbor area, snow could be mixed with rain, mainly after noon Tuesday with a high near 34.
In Northwest Ohio, Monday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 35, while Monday night will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 27.
Tuesday is another matter.
Northwest Ohio is expected to get a 100 percent chance of snow, freezing rain, and sleet before 10 a.m., then snow, possibly mixed with sleet between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., followed by rain and snow after 1 p.m.
Tuesday’s high will be near 35, and breezy with an east wind of 18 to 22 miles an hour.
Tuesday night’s forecast calls for rain and snow showers, becoming all snow after 1 a.m. Wednesday. The low will be around 33. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent, with precipitation between a quarter and half inch possible, according to the weather service.
