Metro Detroit weather: Accumulating snow arrives tonight
Everything remains on track with the accumulating snow on the way. The only difference from 24 hours ago is that today’s computer models have shifted some of the approaching system’s most favorable dynamics a little farther south, so I’ve pared back the snow amounts a tad.

Winter storm update: Current snow totals for Metro Detroit Sunday
DETROIT – The bulk of this weekend’s snowfall wrapped up on Sunday morning -- even a bit earlier than expected. A low pressure area passing to Michigan’s south weakened Sunday as its energy was transferred to a developing storm on the east coast, cutting the Metro Detroit snow totals shorter than anticipated near and south of I-94. AdAn upper level disturbance crossing the state on Monday may generate more light snow, but should remain under an inch of accumulation for the most part. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Michigan’s Lenawee, Monroe, Washtenaw and Wayne counties from midnight Saturday to 10 p.m. Sunday.

Metro Detroit weather: Chance of snow overnight, mostly-dry weekend
DETROIT – The forecast is getting less flaky as we head into the weekend. Snow NorthAn area of light snow with some rain will rotate through the northern part of our area tomorrow morning. Mainly Dry WeekendWe still have a slight chance of lake effect snow on Sunday, but that shot is pretty slim. Minor BumpAfter a slightly cooler weekend, temperatures get a bit of a bump by the middle of next week. By that time, normal highs will be only the upper 30s and daytime highs should reach the mid 40s.
Metro Detroit weather: Drier, sunnier workweek, snow possible for the weekend
DETROIT – We’ve turned the corner from clouds and snow, just don’t expect a huge warm-up, even with more sunshine. Respectable WarmthTemperatures have jumped 10–15 degrees from our snowy start to the workweek. We may see some lake-effect snow showers late Sunday, but the cold front leading up to that chance looks like it will washout before it gets here. The middle of next week looks like our most likely chance for precipitation area-wide. Optimistic WeekendWith Sunday’s snow chance being small (and late if it shows up at all), most of the weekend will be a green light for getting outside.
