SATURDAY - ALERT DAY FOR WINTRY WEATHER


By late Saturday night snowfall amounts may reach 1-3" on a line from Defiance through the Toledo Metro Area and points north.  This will start out as a wet rain/snow mix by early afternoon, changing to all snow past sunset.  The biggest travel concern will be bridges and overpasses Saturday night as temperatures drop below freezing.


At the onset of precipitation surface temperatures will be above freezing.  You can expect most if not all of the snow to melt on impact in the late morning/early afternoon.


Precipitation is most likely to pick up in the Toledo Area in the early afternoon.


Rain/snow mix will change to all snow in the Toledo Area near sunset.
This means the most likely time for accumulating snow is between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM.


Travel conditions will be tougher across lower Michigan.  Any travel north of I-94 can expect to see heavier snow accumulations Saturday afternoon/evening.
