Here's the prediction from WILX News 10 First Alert Meteorologist Colton Cichoracki:

Some snow (will begin) around midnight along and south of I-94. The snow will then spread north by daybreak. This snow will continue through the morning and then wrap up in the afternoon. Snowfall totals will be heaviest in southern parts of Mid-Michigan. That is where 2-4″ of snow is likely with around 1-3″ in the Lansing area.

Here's a town-by-town look at what to expect.
