Forecasters say as much as 3 to 6 inches of snow could accumulate between today and tomorrow morning in Alpena and Montmorency counties; and as much as 3 to 8 inches in the Rogers City area.

The National Weather Service said in its advisory that visibility will decrease as snow showers move in.

The advisory runs through 5 a.m. Saturday.  Forecasters say driving could be difficult at times with snow-covered roads and limited visibilities.

Officials for cities across the metro said they are monitoring road conditions and are prepared to treat roads as conditions deteriorate.

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) Snow has moved out of the metro area as of the lunch hour. Skies even beginning to clear from north to south. However, powerful northwest winds will continue to pump Arctic air into the region. Temperatures are already falling into the lower 20s, and we may see readings slip into the teens this afternoon. With the arctic cold and strong winds, wind chills will likely be in the low teens and single digits for much of the afternoon.

Things get even colder overnight. Partly to mostly clear skies combined with the fresh snow will allow temperatures to slide to around 10 degrees in the metro, perhaps some single digits north of the metro. Winds will let up some in the evening and overnight, but wind chills will likely remain in the single digits to near zero overnight and into Saturday morning.

Partly cloudy skies expected on Saturday, and we will continue to feel the winter chill. Highs only in the low to mid 30s expected. A slight “warm up” on Sunday before another blast of arctic air arrives early next week.
