Winter storm warning issued for Metro Detroit ahead of weekend snow

4-8 inches expected to fall

DETROIT – Southeast Michigan is under a winter storm warning Friday night into Saturday as several inches of snowfall are expected.

Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Sanilac, Washtenaw and Wayne counties are under the warning, which is in effect 10 p.m. Friday until noon Saturday.

Genesee, Lapeer, Sanilac and St. Clair counties are under a winter weather advisory.

About 5-8 inches of snow are expected to fall. Rain and above-freezing temperatures are expected to impact the totals on the ground.

Friday morning’s computer model guidance is very consistent with what I’ve seen the past couple of days, giving me high confidence in a noteworthy winter storm arriving Friday night and continuing into Saturday.
