Winter Storm Warning for Sanilac and Huron counties

DETROIT – There is a Winter Storm Warning in Sanilac and Huron Counties through Central and Northern Michigan starting later today.

We will see a few rain and snow showers streaming into the Thumb Region this morning, but most of the wintry mix will get going through the afternoon and evening.

The concern in our northern counties is a rate of snowfall of 1” per hour at times through the evening.

There is a chance for rain to mix in and limit snow accumulation, but some areas along and north of M 46 could see 3-6” of snow.

Rain should take over eventually creating a sloppy mess north. Most of Metro Detroit will see rain showers through the afternoon and evening. 

Highs are falling this morning and will be falling and all day. Although we start near 50 degrees, temps fall into the low 40s as a cool front passes and rain moving in after 2pm. We may get a few showers here and there during the morning, but again most precip will hold off until later.

Get ready for more rain and pockets of heavy rain Thursday as temps try to climb again.

Winds from the South 10-20 mph will bring our highs near 60 degrees even with the rain. It will be a short lived warm up as cool air surges back in Thursday night. This will likely lead to a few snow showers late Thursday and early Friday before the storm clears Friday morning. Sun returns Friday afternoon as temps struggle in the low to mid 40s. Most of Friday and all of Saturday look dry and very mild, warming back into the 50s Saturday.

It’s early, but model data suggests a few showers on Easter Sunday. We will keep an eye on the big day and alert you of any changes.
