The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of southeastern Michigan, including Birmingham and Oakland County. The advisory is in effect from 7 p.m. Sunday night until 6 a.m. Monday morning.
According to the NWS, Michigan can expect to see snow showers changeover to a mix of snow and freezing rain around midnight. Air temperatures are then expected to rise above freezing by 3 a.m., which will then support another changeover to rain.
Ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an inch are possible, mainly on elevated surfaces. Snorwfall accumulations of 1 to 2 inches will be possible in some areas, including Royal Oak.
According to the NWS, here's what to watch out for:
- Untreated road surfaces may become snow covered and slippery during the evening and overnight hours
- Untreated steps and walkways may pose a hazard to pedestrians
