Snow, rain, ice make for tough driving in Michigan

An overnight mix of snow, rain and ice throughout much of southern Michigan is making for a messy drive.

Spin-out accidents are being reported in the Detroit area where a few hundred schools and districts have decided to cancel classes for the day.

Snow started falling in downtown Detroit shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday. Freezing rain followed and shifted to rain by early Monday.

The combination resulted in slushy, icy roadways in the region.

The good news is that temperatures are expected to steadily rise well above freezing on Monday and Tuesday, where they may threaten record highs in parts of the state.
