Freezing rain is possible Monday afternoon and evening in parts of Michigan. Areas in the center of the state and in northern Lower Michigan have the highest chances of seeing freezing rain and ice accumulations. These icy conditions could range from a glaze of ice on sidewalks and roads to up to a tenth of an inch of ice, according to the National Weather Service.
This could create slick or icy roads, meaning you’d want to leave more time if you’ll be traveling.
Highlights from the NWS forecast:
- The greatest chance for freezing rain and accumulating ice Monday is north of U.S. 10
- The closer you get to I-96 and all points south of that line, then the chances for freezing rain are lower
- The timeline for this freezing rain is roughly 3 p.m. Monday to midnight
