This latest system is coming on the heels of significant snowfall over the weekend, where some areas in Alberta recorded over 20 centimetres of snow.

"The reason for the Winter Storm Warning is because 5 to 10" with some spots getting upwards of a foot of snow during this time frame.




A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for much of the state Thursday morning through Friday evening - see map in video. "The snow is expected to end Friday".

Forecast models are indicating the heaviest snow more likely to fall near and south of Detroit with the amounts tapering off to the north. By Thursday morning, a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, snow, and even rain is expected to form along I-15. It should taper off later Wednesday night.
