Winter weather advisory issued: snow, winds expected overnight into Wednesday morning

Mother Nature’s not done yet

After a messy day of icy, miserable weather, Southeast Michigan is under another winter weather advisory.

Forecasters say snow showers will move into the area overnight and persist well into the morning.

Some of the snow showers will be intense and capable of dropping visibilities to near zero, the National Weather Service said.

Accumulations will range from a half inch up to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts possible.

In addition, southwest winds will gust over 40 mph at times, leading to some blowing.

Update: Dirt road trash collection delayed for second day in a row in Huron Township

Trash collection on dirt roads in Huron Township will be delayed at least one day due to the icy road conditions.

The township clerk’s office said dirt road pickups had to be suspended for today because two Waste Management garbage trucks got stuck on ice or went off in ditches caused by icy roads.
