SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The "snowcrastination" will pass tonight as a major weather system finally makes impact in our region.

Later Thursday, about 4 to 6 of snow is expected for Shiawassee, Genesee, and Lapeer counties, with everyone else seeing 6 to 10 inches of snowfall -- and locally higher amounts are possible.

The snow is still set to be light and scattered for the first half of today, then it will pick up and become heavier as the day wears on. Most of mid-Michigan will see the greatest accumulations later this evening and heading into tonight.

More mid-Michigan counties were upgraded early this morning to a winter storm warning. For Saginaw, Tuscola, Huron, and Sanilac counties, the warning goes into effect at 4pm and lasts until noon tomorrow. In Midland and Bay counties, the winter storm warning is in effect from noon today until 10 a.m. on Friday.

Clare, Isabella, and Gratiot counties are also under a winter storm warning, which is in effect from noon today until noon tomorrow. The final winter storm warning is in effect from noon today until 6am Friday, and includes Arenac, Gladwin, Roscommon, Ogemaw, Iosco, and Alcona counties.

These areas can expect the highest accumulations from this storm system.

Southern parts of the viewing area will see slightly less. A winter storm watch will be in effect for Shiawassee, Genesee, and Lapeer counties from this evening until tomorrow morning.

All areas should except messy snow-covered roads and slick sidewalks. Plan to leave yourself extra time to commute anywhere tonight and tomorrow morning.
