Roads across the state are some combination of snowy, slushy, and/or wet.

The Metro and areas east of I-35 will go under a Winter Storm Warning at 3 PM.

Then comes the more significant storm on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

8 p.m. Residents of the Pacific Northwest took to neighbourhood hills with skis, sleds or even just laundry baskets Saturday to celebrate an unusual dump of snow in a region more accustomed to winter rain. While there are still a few things to nail down in terms of timing and totals, expect some rough commutes on Tuesday. It was expected to taper off in time for the Monday morning commute, but the next storm was on its way later in the day. Lighter snow will continue overnight Monday into Tuesday, but the heaviest snow will continue to push toward Minnesota and Wisconsin by Tuesday afternoon.

Sandusky and Ottawa counties are under the advisory for a mix of snow and ice and winds gusting as high as 35 miles per hour from 8 p.m. tonight until 8 a.m. tomorrow morning. "It is possible that we could see some ice accumulation of up to 0.10".

The snowstorm, which started moving through the area around noon, should bring less than an inch of accumulation, according to the National Weather Service.

Another storm system is arriving now into Iowa and Minnesota. "Another 1-2" will fall during the evening before tapering off before midnight. Blue=Winter Storm Watch, Purple=Winter Weather Advisory.

Our next storm system is a mainly-rain-maker arriving on Friday.

Environment Canada says to avoid travel if possible, with rapidly accumulating snow causing potentially hazardous conditions.
