A winter weather advisory will remain in effect from midnight on Monday night to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 23 for Shiawassee, Genesee and Lapeer counties, according to the National Weather Service.

It will cause hazardous travel that can impact the morning commute. A mix of snow and sleet of two to four inches and a tenth of an inch of ice accumulations are expected.

“Snow develops after midnight and becomes mixed with sleet and freezing rain toward the I-69 corridor late tonight and Tuesday morning,” the winter weather advisory reads. “The wintry mix then migrates northward toward the Tri Cities and northern Thumb during the day while becoming primarily freezing rain toward I-69 until temperatures warm above freezing mid-to-late afternoon.”
