This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of southwest
Michigan...northern Indiana and northwest Ohio.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Widespread dense fog will continue this evening across portions of
northwest and north central Indiana along with southern Lower
Michigan. Please refer to the dense fog advisory issued by this
office for more detail. Visibilities may improve late this evening
into the overnight hours, but confidence is low in timing the
improvement of visibilities.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Rain is expected to changeover to a wintry mix late Thursday night
into Friday morning. Rain will changeover over to a period of sleet
and freezing rain, before changing over to snow from west to east.
Some light snow and ice accumulations are expected that will likely
lead to some hazardous travel conditions late Thursday night through
the Friday morning period.

Accumulating snowfall is expected Friday night through Saturday over
portions of extreme northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio with
several inches of snow accumulation possible. Current indications
would suggest the area with the greatest potential of receiving
several inches of snow accumulation is roughly along and southeast
of an Ottawa Ohio to Portland Indiana line. There is a still a good
deal of uncertainty regarding the track of this system and where the
heaviest snow may fall. The location of the forecasted heaviest snow
will likely change over the next few days. Stay updated on the
latest forecast over the next few days as forecast confidence
increases and details regarding this system become more clear. Gusty
north winds may result in areas of blowing and drifting snow and
reduced visibilities.

Melting snowfall and rain may bring increased river levels and
possible ice jams.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter reports of any mixed precipitation and snowfall will be
appreciated through the weekend.
