A winter storm warning has been issued for all of Wayne County from 1 p.m. Friday through 4 a.m. Saturday.

Forecasters say heavy, wet snow is expected. Total snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches is likely. Wind gusts as high as 35 to 45 mph are also forecasted.

From the National Weather Service in Detroit:

“Very heavy snow rates, on the order of 1 to 2 plus inches per hour, are likely over a short three to six hour window. The peak rates occur Friday afternoon into Friday evening followed by moderate snow after midnight. Winds gusting to 45 mph may result in rapid reductions to visibility and isolated power outages will be possible from the cumulative impacts of accumulating wet snow and gusty winds.”

Plan on rapid deterioration of travel conditions during late Friday afternoon. The hazardous conditions will impact the evening commute.
