Are You Dreaming of a White Christmas?

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) released a public request Thursday morning to remind drivers to keep their distance from snowplows when they’re working.

Do you believe in miracles?

Those dreaming of a white Christmas this year -- might see nothing short of a miracle Tuesday morning.

The weather report for Dexter and Chelsea is calling for snow showers on Thursday and Friday with temperatures ranging from 32 to 24 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The chance for precipitation is 80 percent on Thursday and 70 percent on Friday. There could be as much as one and a half inches of snow by Saturday morning -- just three days shy of Christmas Day.

If there is snow on the ground this weekend, it will likely hang around until the big day because temperatures are expected to range from 33 degrees Saturday night to 31 degrees on Christmas Day. On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees, so the outside air could remain cold enough to keep the white stuff around long enough to open a few gifts.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) seems to believe in miracles. MDOT released a public request Thursday morning to remind drivers to keep their distance from snowplows when they’re working.

“The Washtenaw County Road Commission needs your help to keep roads safe this winter," Jim  Harmon, director of operations said in a press release. "Motorists must play their part by driving safely no matter how often roads are plowed or salted, and by giving snowplow operators room to do their jobs."
