Metro Detroit weather: Patches of snow showers after sunset

Winter weather advisory in effect for Sanilac, St. Clair counties overnight

DETROIT – Temperatures are already in the teens, with wind chills just above zero. By the time the Wednesday morning commute arrives, wind chills will be below zero.

We're also watching the snow potential for Sanilac and St. Clair counties. A winter weather advisory remains in effect for those two counties until 10 a.m. Wednesday. Narrow, persistent and fairly intense lake-effect snow is possible, especially near the lakeshore. Areas there might pick up a few inches of snow overnight and early Wednesday.

Otherwise, the rest of us will see plenty of sunshine on Wednesday, with windy conditions. High temperatures will stop short of 30 degrees. Any lake-effect bands in our North Zone will end by mid-morning.

Warmer temperatures will move in for the second half of the workweek.

Thursday we’ll finally be above freezing in the afternoon.

St. Patrick’s Day, Friday, will bring low 40s but also some rain. We might see another burst of light snow by Saturday.
