WILX News 10 First Alert Meteorologist Justin Bradford expects the Tuesday morning commute around much of Mid-Michigan could be a little tricky:

Our concern is for several inches of slushy snow that will cause poor roads and slow travel for the Tuesday morning drive. The snow will transition over to rain by midday Tuesday.

Bradford cautions that an even stronger winter storm may potentially wreak havoc across Mid-Michigan as we make our way into this weekend. Stay tuned for updates.
