Just as the calendar turns the page to March, it appears winter still has its grip held tight.

A winter storm watch has been issued for all of southeast Michigan for Friday afternoon though late Friday night.

5 to 8 inches of snow is possible by Saturday morning.

Winds of 45 mph are also possible on Friday during the snow storm.

The National Weather Service in Detroit says:

“Uncertainty still exists regarding the northward extent of the rain/snow line as warmer air filters into the state. The transition zone along the rain/snow line may see a brief period of freezing rain, leading to ice accumulations up to a light glaze. Locations that observe snow will be subject to very heavy snow rates, on the order of 1 to 2 inches per hour, over a short three to six hour window. These heavy rates will be possible Friday afternoon into Friday evening and may impact the rush hour commute. Winds gusting to 45 mph may result in rapid reductions to visibility with snowfall.”
