How much of the white stuff will fall?

The National Weather Service (NWS) predicts up to 8 inches across southeast Michigan from 10 a.m. Wednesday through 12 a.m. Thursday. Farmington and Farmington Hills are in the area where the heaviest snowfall is expected, between I-69 and I-94.

WDIV-TV’s Paul Gross (a Farmington Hills resident) expects “the heaviest stripe of snow Wednesday should generate from 4 to 8 inches of the white stuff.”

At WXYZ-TV, Dave Rexroth (also a Farmington Hills resident) says the most common totals across the metro area will fall in the range of 3 to 6 inches. “The snow will be a little lighter feel than the last snow,” he said.

Roads will become snow covered and visibilities may be limited just in time for Wednesday’s rush hour.
