Metro Detroit weather: Snow showers on Super Bowl Sunday

Metro Detroit under winter weather advisory with chance of 2-4 inches of snow

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Sunday afternoon!

Parts of Southeast Michigan are under a winter weather advisory from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. for the potential of 2-4 inches of snow today. The snow that we expect here will fall short of what they get in places to our west.

Our snow will come a little later today.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for most of Metro Detroit from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday due to snow. Specifically Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties are forecasted to receive between 2-4 inches of snow, with snowfall rates at over an inch per hour at times.

Our computer models show a bit more of a conservative outlook, with fewer than 2-4 inches of accumulation for many spots in the region. We expect fluctuations in the coverage and intensity of the snow throughout the day.

Snow showers are most likely here in Metro Detroit between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. today, with more scattered light snow or flurries during the evening.

Our high temps will only hit the lower 20s. Winds moving NNW at 5-10 mph will create wind chills in the low-to-mid teens at times this afternoon.

While they might see a half a foot of new snow to the west of us, our 2-4 inches of accumulation here will likely cause very tricky travel conditions. Because the snow will fluctuate in intensity during the day, it’s hard to say exactly when it will be safe to sneak out for those Super Bowl snacks and parties. Be careful!

Today’s sunset is at 6:02 p.m.

Snow showers will fade Sunday evening.

Mostly dry Valentine’s Day

Temps will take another cool dip overnight Sunday into Monday, with Monday morning lows in the single digits and wind chills closer to 0 degrees, or even sub zero at times.

Most of our Valentine’s Day should be mostly dry, but another weak disturbance will cruise through here, bringing a few snowflakes and flurries without any accumulation concerns.

It will be a cold one. Snuggle up with your valentine as highs, again, hang in the low 20s, with winds moving SSW at 5-10 mph and wind chills in the teens.

Warming up, then more wet weather

We will move out of the cold Tuesday and into warmer air by Wednesday. Tuesday temps will start in the single digits and low teens, and then head into the low 30s under sunny skies and then a nice mix of sun and clouds.

Wednesday will be windy and warming. Clouds will move in ahead of a troublemaking weather maker late in the day. It looks like most of Wednesday will be dry, with highs near 45-50 degrees, and then rain later into the evening hours.

Rain will be coming down pretty good Wednesday night and early Thursday morning before a cold front comes crashing through Metro Detroit on Thursday. Rain will switch over to snow Thursday, as morning temps near 40 degrees will be falling throughout the day.

Snow late Thursday into early Friday will likely be stacking up. It’s early to say, but some snow computer model data shows 3-5 inches will fall here by the end of this week.
