Crashes abound following Ann Arbor snowfall; next up: possible thunderstorm
Multiple crashes have been reported on Interstate 94 today in the wake of Friday night’s snowfall in the Ann Arbor area.
One crash forced the closure of eastbound Interstate 94 east of Zeeb Road on the west side of Ann Arbor about noon. Emergency crews had been dealing with many crashes along I-94 from Ann Arbor to Ypsilanti all morning, a dispatcher with the Washtenaw County sheriff's department said.

The Washtenaw County Road Commission is out clearing roads, dispatchers said, and had been working all night. Few accidents were reported overnight, she said.
The National Weather Service reported Ann Arbor had received 2 inches of snow on top of an inch already on the ground from Thursday’s snowfall.
The snow isn't likely to stick around long though. After a mostly sunny day today with a high near 22, warmer temperatures and rain will be moving in Sunday. The low will drop to 13 tonight, but temperatures will climb to around 40 under mostly sunny skies Sunday. Rain and perhaps even a thunderstorm are expected Sunday night with a low around 37.
