Michigan State Police Say to Get Your Holiday Errands Done on Thursday
This huge storm is coming, and the National Weather Service and Michigan State Police are saying people should get their holiday errands and travel done early. Those planning to be on the road should also be ready for hazardous travel conditions if they are determined to travel on Friday or Saturday.
“Try to complete travel, errands, and Christmas shopping by Thursday evening as conditions will deteriorate rapidly with the arrival of a major winter storm,” the National Weather Service meteorologists said Wednesday (Dec. 21). “Be prepared for the possibility of blizzard conditions Friday and Friday night.”
According to the NWS, “Roads will likely become slick after 5 p.m. Thursday at the Lakeshore, 6 p.m. along U.S. 131, and 8 p.m. along U.S. 127. Roads on Friday morning will be snow-covered and slippery.”
