A slow-moving storm system, now in southeastern Nebraska, is expected to bring a variety of wintry weather to MI through Monday.

The NWS says there could be significant icing with about a half inch of ice possible.

The rain may become ice pellets at certain times.

On Saturday, the agency warned the storm could be reminiscent of the 2013 ice storm that blanketed the region and caused wide-spread power outages.

"There remains considerable uncertainty with regards to how long the freezing rain will last before changing over to rain on Sunday", it reads.

"Precipitation may start out as rain, but increasing northeasterly winds will draw colder air from an arctic high pressure system to the north, resulting in a changeover to freezing rain".

The rain and pellets will end for a few hours the evening of April 14, before returning later that night and persisting into April 15.

Ice build up of 10 to 20 mm is pretty likely across the region by Sunday morning.

A freezing rain warning is also in effect for just Chatham-Kent. Enough rain may fall later Sunday into Sunday night for some flooding to be an issue to deal with then.

"Snow changing to freezing rain is possible for the Greater Montreal, the Outaouais and the Eastern Townships". It may exceed that in some locales.

"Power outages and tree damage are likely due to the strong winds and ice".

The companies say that their first priorities are to respond to known incidents of downed power lines to make the situations safe.
