Freezing drizzle expected overnight

TRAVERSE CITY — Wednesday morning's commute may be dicey, as forecasters expect patchy freezing drizzle to fall overnight.

Temperatures in the mid 20s and moisture in the air will be enough for ice to coat the roads, said Jeff Lutz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gaylord. The drizzle is attributed to a southwest storm system causing wind flow out of the east, which adds moisture to the lower levels of the atmosphere over northern Michigan, Lutz said.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for northern lower Michigan stating slippery road conditions are possible Wednesday.

Forecasters predict northeast lower Michigan will be the most affected.

"It's hard to say how widespread this is going to be," Lutz said. "I wouldn't be surprised if some schools had delays or closures."
