Throughout the morning is when travel will be the most dangerous with snow and slushy roads expected and reduced visibility. Snow and sleet become more scattered through the afternoon, with only a few showers continuing after 3 p.m.
Total snowfall will be <1″ along Lake Michigan, with 1-3″ of heavy wet snow inland. Locally higher amounts near 4″ are possible Inland.
