Snow days -- or virtual days -- are highly likely this week, perhaps even for multiple days, with a big snowstorm on the horizon in Southeast Michigan.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Wednesday and Thursday for all of Metro Detroit. This will likely be upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning as a big winter storm takes aim at Metro Detroit midweek.

Snow totals over the two days could top more than 14 inches of snow in some areas. Which means school closings are likely Wednesday thru Friday.
