DETROIT – The Veterans Day snowstorm in Metro Detroit isn’t done yet. Most of us will see the accumulation come to an end by late evening. The exception will be the North Zone, where lake-effect snow bands will persist. This might be the earliest snowstorm in Detroit history. Monday’s snow will likely break the daily record of 4.1 inches set back in 1984, and it might swamp the earliest snowstorm mark of 5.6 inches from Nov. 6, 1951.
