Winter storm watch issued for southeast Michigan; blizzard conditions possible

Posted by The Huron Hub | Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2022

A winter storm watch has been issued for southeast Michigan by the National Weather Service.

The watch is in effect from Thursday evening through Saturday evening.

The potential for six inches of snowfall is possible in areas of southeast Michigan.

Travel could be very difficult to impossible. Widespread blowing snow may significantly reduce visibilities to near zero yielding whiteout conditions. Drifting snow could hamper snow removal operations. The hazardous conditions may impact the morning and evening commutes Friday while posing great risk to holiday weekend travel. Strong winds may bring down tree branches and cause scattered to widespread power outages.

A rapid changeover from rain to snow is expected late Thursday evening into Friday morning. Wind chill values drop some 5 to 15 degrees below zero at times.

Prepare for possible blizzard conditions. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle.
