Low pressure will move into Lower Michigan by tonight. Drizzle may develop after 7 am EST and persist into this evening across much of the area. Some freezing drizzle is possible in areas this morning mainly north of US-6 before temperatures rise above freezing. Falling temperatures this evening could bring another small window for freezing drizzle before all precipitation end. Confidence in the freezing drizzle occurring is low and any impacts would be limited. Motorists should keep an eye out for slick spots. Rain chances return starting Thursday afternoon, persisting into Saturday morning. The best chance looks to be Thursday night into Friday.
