The latest snow models show most of Metro Detroit getting between 5 and 8 inches of snow on Thursday.
The big concern is the potential for 0.75″ to 1.00″ of rain, and associated flooding. A cold front passes through the area late at night and the temperatures dip.
A Winter Storm Warning begins at 3 p.m. Thursday and is scheduled to expire at 3:00 a.m. Friday morning. All snow should end by midnight Thursday night.
Some schools are already declaring Thursday a snow day -- or virtual day. Track school closings here.
