Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Southeastern Michigan

Expect snow showers and high wind throughout the day Friday, the official first day of winter.

Winter weather has arrived to Michigan right on time.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of southeastern, western and mid Michigan Friday. The advisory is in effect from 9 a.m.-midnight on Dec. 21—which also happens to be the official winter solstice.

According to the NWS, Michigan can expect to see strong winds coming in from the northwest throughout the afternoon and evening. Gusts could be as high as 45 miles per hour.

Snow showers will continue through the morning, but should stop by early evening. We can expect to see snow accumulation of around an inch in most areas, including Dearborn. Some areas of Michigan, however, could see as much as three inches of snow.

The Dearborn Police Department issued an alert Friday morning, urging residents to be cautious in the wintry weather.

According to the NWS, here's what to watch out for:

  • Small tree branches could be blown down, leading to possible power outages. Keep all small outdoor objects secure, as well as holiday decorations.
  • Snow will cause slippery roads and reduced visibility. Use caution while driving.
