Posted by The Huron Hub | Monday, Feb. 20, 2023

A potentially dangerous winter storm is in the forecast for mid-week.

A winter storm watch has been issued for southeast Michigan for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning.

A widespread heavy mix of freezing rain and sleet with some snow is possible during the storm watch, according to forecasters.

Significant icing is possible which could lead to localized tree damage and power outages. Hazardous travel conditions are likely through the event.

The latest forecast information broadly outlines the area from about the I-94 corridor northward as having potential for primarily freezing rain and sleet.

The area along and north of M-59 to I-69 has increased potential for localized damaging ice accumulation.

Monitor this situation closely as significant changes in forecast precipitation type, amounts, and timing are possible in later updates.
