If you’re planning on traveling during Superbowl Sunday, be prepared to deal with snow covered roads, freezing cold temperatures and treacherous driving conditions.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Wayne, Washtenaw, Lenawee and Monroe Counties for Saturday night through Sunday night.

This event could result in the largest snow accumulations so far this winter.

Snowfall is expected to start between 10 p.m. and 12 p.m. on Saturday, with all of Southeast Michigan experiencing a moderate snowfall by Sunday morning.

Superbowl Sunday won’t only be a snowy mess, but cold temperatures will also impact the region with highs expected to reach only into the teens.

This could lead to treacherous travel conditions during one of the country’s most popular sporting events, with the potential for blowing snow and drifts to reduce visibility on roadways.

Forecasts show that the farther south you go, the larger the snow amounts will be. By the end of the snow event, the metro-region will have a fresh 10+ inches of snow on the ground.
