Weather Authority Alert ending at 6:30 p.m.; winter weather still in effect

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Expect snow showers windy conditions Tuesday night. Two to three inches of snow will be possible overnight and into Wednesday morning. Wind gusts to 35 mph will be possible Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Crashes were happening Tuesday morning because driving conditions were slippery, as snow, sleet and freezing rain hit Michigan.

The potentially damaging weather is expected to continue Wednesday and ice storm warnings were issued in parts of southeastern Michigan.

The Upper Peninsula is expected to get the largest snow accumulations, with up to 12 inches forecast.

The weather hit after crews restored power to those affected by last week's ice storms.

Consumers Energy last week had more than 231,000 homes and businesses without power and says about 1,000 workers from eight states helped its crews. The utility says about 360 of those workers are staying in Michigan to deal with anticipated outages this week.
