Metro Detroit weather forecast: Another round of snow on the way

But the sun should be making a comeback soon


DETROIT – We’ll see some sunshine mixed in with these mostly cloudy skies and highs around 47 degrees and winds WNW 5-12 mph.

Rain arrives during the evening commute which will slow things down around 5 or 6 p.m.

Rain switches to snow overnight

The rain switches to snow late tonight and we may have a few hours of steady snow coming down around or just after midnight. Most of our model data suggests a solid inch of new snow on the ground by Thursday morning. Not what we may want, but it could be worse. 

Mostly sunny Thursday

After early morning snow Thursday, look for cloudy skies to become mostly sunny into the mid afternoon. A chilly start tomorrow near freezing, and then breezy and only slightly warmer with highs in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Those winds will be cranking NW 10-20 mph gusting stronger at times.

Friday, weekend forecast

We can all expect tons of sun Friday through the weekend and beyond. We will see highs into the low 50s Friday for most of Metro Detroit with a few exceptions, and mid 50s Saturday with more sunshine. We may hit 60 degrees Sunday, and if we don’t we certainly believe we’ll hit that number several times next week.

The next decent rain chance will be Wednesday of next week.
