Cold front coming… Drive/travel carefully!



An Arctic cold front moves into the area on Friday. An abrupt decrease in temperature brings icy road conditions.

An arctic front will sweep south through Michigan on Friday. HAZARDS: * Icy Roads possibly developing Friday due to small amounts of snow (1″ or less) freezing as temperatures fall abruptly from the mid 30s into the 20s and teens. IMPACTS: * Hazardous travel conditions possible due to the abrupt weather change. This comes after a lengthy period of no winter weather and safe travel, and it may catch some drivers off guard. TIMING/COMMUTES: * North of I-96: From mid morning through mid afternoon, probably holding off until after the morning commute time. * Along and South of the I-96 Corridor: in the afternoon and evening. This includes the Friday drive home commute. This is From NOAA’s National Weather Service.
