Editor's note: The time of a crash has been corrected.
A light snowfall glazed Ann Arbor area roads morning, challenging motorists during the rush-hour commute.
At 7:20 a.m., accidents were reported on eastbound I-94 west of Huron and westbound I-94 west of Michigan Avenue. Neither of those crashes was believed to be blocking the freeway. A rollover crash was reported at Nixon Road and Pontiac Trail about 7:45 a.m.
Southbound US-23 was shut down for a while early this morning because of a serious-injury accident that involved multiple vehicles. A Google map showed a significant residual backup in both directions on the freeway.
The National Weather Service urged motorists to use extra caution and said slick conditions could persist throughout the morning commute.
Later today, cloudy skies should give way to partly sunny conditions. The high will be near 40. Tonight, snow will move in again after midnight with up to an inch of accumulation expected. Lows will range from 26 to 30. Saturday, snow is likely in the morning with up to an inch of additional accumulation expected. The high will be in the low to mid 30s.
