    Deb Elliott, observation program leader for the National Weather Service in White Lake Township, said the Ann Arbor area will probably receive an inch of snow or less.

    "The majority of the snow will fall overnight tonight and a little bit will fall tomorrow," said Elliott. "The system is coming through the area this evening with snow arriving around 8 p.m."

    Elliott says there are currently about 5 inches of snow on the ground in the Ann Arbor area.

    It will be overcast on Sunday with a 40 percent chance of snow. The high will be 32 degrees but the windchill will get as low as 18 degrees. The temperature will dip to 14 degrees Sunday night.
