DETROIT -

Tuesday morning will have passing raindrops and snow flakes before sunrise with temps in the low 30s.  Then the afternoon will be dry but remain gray with highs just above 40 degrees.

Wednesday will be uneventfull, too, with some sun and highs in the low 40s.

By Thursday, the Pacific storm will be emerging from The Plains with gulf moisture bringing a chance of rain as afternoon temps reach 45.  Thursday night, colder air moves in to change the rain to snow while dropping temps to 30 or less.

Friday will be blustery with snow showers that could give a significant slippery coating to Southeast Michigan streets.  Up to an inch of snow is possible, but this forecast is subject to change.  Stay tuned to Local 4 News and JustWeather.com before adjusting any plans.
