The evening commute could be very slippery as rain changes to snow later today.
The National Weather Service in Detroit/Pontiac has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 7 p.m. Tuesday until 7 a.m. Wednesday. Rain will change over to snow this evening and continue overnight. The snow, which may be heavy at times, should taper off by morning; total snowfall accumulations will range from 1-4 inches.

Oakland County and the rest of southeast Michigan should prepare for 2 inches of rain along with wind, snow and ice.
With heavy rain expected tonight through Wednesday, Oakland County communities are under a flood watch. And there's a bit of white stuff in the forecast, too. The ground is already soaked from previous rains, the 2 inches or more of rain forecast for 7 p.m. today through Wednesday morning means rivers could approach flood stage with localized flooding of low lying areas and some roadways, the National Weather Service says. That four-letter word – snow – is also being tossed into the forecast as temperatures are expected to dip from the mid-40s to the mid-20s by Thursday night. The wet and cold conditions coupled with winds gusting to 25 mph also could create icy conditions.
