...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM EDT /10 PM CDT/
THIS EVENING TO 11 AM EDT /10 AM CDT/ FRIDAY...

The National Weather Service in Marquette has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for freezing rain and icing, which is in effect
from 11 PM EDT /10 PM CDT/ this evening to 11 AM EDT /10 AM CDT/
Friday.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER...

 * Freezing rain is expected to develop tonight and push east
   throughout the overnight hours. At times freezing rain may mix
   with sleet and rain.

 * The greatest accumulations expected across central portions of
   Upper Michigan, with a tenth to a quarter of an inch possible,
   especially across the higher terrain. Across the east, around
   or less than a tenth of an inch of ice accumulations is
   expected.

IMPACTS...

 * Expect a slick morning commute as ice accumulations on road
   ways, especially untreated roads and bridges, will decrease
   traction.

 * Ice accumulations are expected on elevated surfaces, such as
   trees and powerlines.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

 * A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of sleet and
   freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.

 * Prepare, plan, and stay informed. Visit www.weather.gov/mqt
