A storm that's brought up to 9 inches of snow to parts of Michigan's northern
Lower Peninsula is creating hazardous driving conditions and prompting
hundreds of school closings in Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, Genesee, Monroe, St.
Clair, Livingston, Sanilac and Washtenaw counties.
The Detroit Public Schools district also said it canceled classes.
Between 3 to 5 inches of snow fell around Oakland and Macomb counties overnight with 1 to 2 inches of accumulation in Wayne and Washtenaw counties by 6 a.m. today, National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Considine said this morning.
A lull in snow was expected to last until 8 a.m. today, when another band of snow is predicted to drop another 1 to 2 inches in metro Detroit.
Considine said the snow would then taper off throughout the region, clearing by about noon today.
In the northern Lower Peninsula, the National Weather Service says 5 to 9 inches of snow fell and conditions are expected to improve Friday as the storm moves out of the region. Parts of West Michigan and mid-Michigan saw at least 3 to 7 inches of snow.
