We are continuing to watch heavy rainfall late this afternoon into the evening hours. Strong winds and slightly colder air just off the ground have allowed ice to form on exposed surface like trees and road signs. Roads should remain above freezing and ice free until any snow begins.
The switch from rain to snow will be slow; first in southeast Michigan and then eventually into Ohio later tonight. Roads will become snow covered and slushy in southern Michigan and mainly wet with some slush in northern Ohio. Overall accumulations still look the heaviest north of Toledo with the least amount near Sandusky.
