DETROIT (WWJ) -- The National Weather Service issued a Special Weather Statement Friday night for the Detroit and Pontiac areas.

Officials say "brief intense snow showers" will be present in the area.

Scattered show showers will advance across the region during the late evening hours and a few of these snow showers will produce a brief period of intense snowfall rates, possibly enough to coat roads. 

The snow showers will end shortly after midnight.

A Special Weather Statement may be issued by the NWS for hazards that have not yet reached warning or advisory status or that do not have a specific code of their own

There is no snow in the forecast for the rest of the weekend.
