Rain will change over to snow this evening and continue overnight. The snow, which may be heavy at times, should taper off by morning; total snowfall accumulations will range from 1-4 inches.
The drop in temperature will cause icy road conditions; untreated roads will be slippery for the Wednesday morning commute, warns the weather service.
"A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties," states the weather service. "Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities."
As of 7:15 p.m., nearly 500 customers in several areas of Oakland Township were without power with the highest concentration of power outages occurring along Predmore and Romeo roads, according to the DTE Energy outage map.
