Metro Detroit weather: Drizzly Sunday afternoon, snowy Veterans Day

1 to 4 inches of snow possible Monday

DETROIT – Happy Sunday, Motown!

Sunday afternoon will be overcast with drizzle. The season’s first significant snow event begins Sunday night and continues Veterans Day, Monday. Brutal cold returns afterward. And it’s still not even winter, yet.

Sunday afternoon will still be cloudy, and also a bit wet with drizzle. Higher temperatures are expected as a southerly wind boosts temperatures to the middle 40s. It will not be impossible to get around, but use caution on wet roads and sidewalks.

Sunday evening will have scattered rain showers with temperatures near 40°F or in the upper 30s.

Sunset is at 5:17 p.m. ET.

Temperatures get closer to freezing Sunday night after midnight. Rain showers will mix with snow showers.


Things are set for a snowy Veterans Day, Monday. As we plan to honor veterans, factor in a lot of extra time getting to and from commemorations. Streets and walkways will become snowy very quickly.

Temperatures will be steady the entire holiday in the upper 20s to freezing.

Monday afternoon will be snowy as well. At the end of the holiday 1 to 3 inches of fresh snow is expected. Areas with 3 inches or slightly more are likely in neighborhoods south of I-94 and north of I-69 near Lake Huron, including Port Huron.

Another arctic blast hits the region Tuesday and Wednesday. Morning lows will be in the teens and their record lows. Afternoon temperatures will be in the middle and upper 20s under partly sunny skies.
