Overnight rain is making Tuesday morning's commute tricky as area roadways get coated with ice and up to two inches of fresh snow.
A low pressure system is currently leaving the Plains states and heading toward Mid-Michigan.
It will bring us different types of precipitation, windy conditions, and a big change in temperatures. Winter weather advisories are in effect for Roscommon, Alcona, Arenac, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Ogemaw, and Iosco counties.
Wind advisories are in effect for Bay, Genesee, Huron, Midland, Saginaw, Sanilac, Shiawassee and Tuscola counties until 10 p.m. Tuesday evening.
Your morning commute may be slick, so give yourself some extra time to travel.
