The winter storm warning is in effect from 3 p.m. Thursday through 3 a.m. Friday.
Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches is possible across the region.
A period of freezing rain and sleet is possible in the afternoon, mainly south of I-94, otherwise heavy snow will develop in the late afternoon, with peak snowfall rates occuring between 5-10 PM Thursday evening.
Snow then looks to taper off around and just after midnight. Some blowing and drifting of snow will occur Thursday night with northerly winds gusting up around 20 mph.
Travel will become very difficult. The hazardous conditions will impact the Thursday evening commute.
