Winter weather causing problems throughout MI today - Feb 11th, 2013 - State

— The National Weather Service says icy roads and high winds could cause problems in parts of Michigan.

In the northern Lower Peninsula, travel conditions are slippery after rainfall froze. Caution was urged Monday.

Dozens of Michigan school districts canceled classes, in part due to icy roads.

Across the southern Lower Peninsula, wind gusts up to 45 mph are forecast starting around midday. Gusts up to 50 mph are possible along Lake Michigan. The winds could knock down trees and push snow and ice from rooftops following earlier storms.

A flood warning is in effect through Wednesday afternoon for the Grand River in Ottawa County's Robinson Township following flooding last week due to ice jams.

Michigan's Upper Peninsula is expected to get snow Monday as a storm moves through the area.
