Rain and snow overnight could mean slick morning commute

By John Counts

Rain turning into snow overnight could make for a slippery Tuesday morning drive, meteorologists said.


Overnight snow and rain could make for slick roads for morning commuters.

“There’s a chance for a slick commute,” said Dave Gurney, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's White Lake office.

The snow won't leave a lasting impact, however. Gurney said there will be less than an inch of accumulation when the snow heads north midday Tuesday.

Rain is forecasted Monday night.

“We have light rain moving in changing into light snow in the morning,” Gurney said.

The low Tuesday morning will be around 31. The rain likely will turn into snow after 7 a.m. with temperatures dropping throughout the day to around 24 by 5 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

Scattered snow showers could stick around Tuesday night when it will be cloudy with a low around 13.

Okay, so the local road commissions (city, county, MDOT) have plenty of advance warning. The question is - will they rise to the occasion?

Cost too much to pre treat the roads..they used to drop salt by the tons, not anymore. That is why those 70's cars rusted away so quickly, 40 degrees and rainy and they be salting the roads if temps would be dropping later on..not anymore. True anti lock brakes help today but they can only do so much good.

I don't know if you are being sarcastic, Sally, but several years ago we had a councilman living in our subdivision; our streets were always kept clear of snow. Didn't like the guy much, but I sure was sorry to see him move!
