People protect themselves from the rain  on Saturday Woodward Avenue near Elmhurst.  Freezing rain is expected to start as early as 6 p.m., but will be most harsh overnight into Sunday, said Alex Manion, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

Freezing drizzle, mixed with light snow could cause slick roads for Metro Detroit travelers for the morning commute Friday, but the temperatures will warm to a high of 40 by late afternoon.

The National Weather Service issued a special weather advisory cautioning travelers to watch out for locally hazardous roadways, bridges, overpasses and, especially, along less-traveled and untreated roadways on Thursday.

But by Friday the temperature climbed just above the freezing point for Metro Detroit and temperatures were expected to climb throughout the day.
