Snow flurries are already falling in Franklin county as of 5 PM and will continue to become more widespread. This means this event will bring wet and heavier snow as opposed to our last system that brought very light and powdery snow. Then another storm system will move over Mid-Michigan.

NEXT WAVE OF SNOW SHOWERS: Following the brief period of dry weather late Monday morning - early Monday afternoon, snow begins to overspread the area again.

Snow is expected to fall and create slippery conditions from Bismarck, North Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Traverse City and Marquette, Michigan. It will not rain continuously, but there will be periods of rain with over an inch of accumulation possible.
