Up To 4 Inches Of Snow Possible
Here we go. A winter weather advisory has been issued for part of west and northwest Lower Michigan.
The advisory does not include Mid-Michigan, but does include Antrim, Otsego, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Crawford, Manistee, Wexford, Missaukeem Mason, Lake, Oceana, and Osceola Counties. The winter weather advisory is in effect until 8pm Friday. This advisory could bring up to 4 inches of heavy snow when all is said and done.
Rain and a rain-snow mix turned to all snow in some areas and power companies in Northern and Western parts of the state say expect some power outages due to tree branches falling on power lines. Strong winds today will not help the situation. Since many trees still have leaves, the snow loading on trees will likely result in branches falling on power lines.
Be careful on the roads, it's been six months and people tend to forget how to drive in snowy conditions.
For those kids going out to Trick or Treat, this is why your parents had you buy a big costume, so you can wear it over your winter coat. This is Halloween in Michigan.
