The National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather Advisories from Thursday night (3/8) at 7pm until Friday morning (3/9) at 11am for counties in Lower Michigan generally west of US 127 and south of Harrison. Areas to the east of that line are under the Winter Weather Advisories from 10pm Thursday night through 2pm Friday. projects 4 to 6 inches of snow beginning late Thursday night and into Friday throughout most Mid-Michigan.

What's telling is that these are Winter Weather Advisories and not Winter Storm Watches. The National Weather Service reserves Winter Storm Watches (and Warnings) for events during which 6 or more inches of wintry precipitation is expected.

Despite Winter Storm Watches (or Warnings) not being issued at this time, AccuWeather forecasters believe the range of accumulations could be a little greater. While areas like Marshall could see as little as 1 to 3 inches of snow on Friday, they expect most areas to see 6 to 10 inches.

What WILX News 10 Thinks

According to WILX News 10 First Alert Chief Meteorologist Darrin Rockcole,

...a steady light to moderate snowfall is expected overnight through the morning hours of Friday. The snow pattern will come to an end by the middle of the afternoon Friday. While this will not be a major snow producer the 3-6′' snowfall over most of the area will make for a slow and slippery morning commute on Friday.

Here are the latest town-by-town projections from the National Weather Service and AccuWeather.
