DETROIT (WWJ) -- Snow squalls and slick road conditions arrived in Southeast Michigan Sunday evening, causing white-out conditions and treacherous driving conditions in some areas.

The National Weather Service in Detroit said early Sunday that light snow and possible bouts of freezing rain were expected to develop around 5 p.m. and last several hours, diminishing by midnight.

WWJ listeners reported white-out conditions to the Traffic Center.

The latest snowfall comes after a week of slightly warmer, drier weather, compared to the previous week that saw as many as eight inches of snow in some area and dangerously low wind chills.

The NWS says while the snow system is expected to be gone by the end of the night Sunday, another system is on its way. A storm is expected to dump 3-4" of snow in Detroit and the areas south and west of the city between Monday night and Wednesday morning. The counties to the north of Detroit could see 5-6" of snowfall, while areas even further north in the Thumb and Flint areas could see 6-7" by Wednesday morning.

In addition to the snowfall, a tenth of an inch of ice or more is expected, making for dangerous driving conditions.
