Snow returns to Metro Detroit: 1-3 inches possible by Thursday afternoon

Wintry mix brings snow, sleet to SE Michigan

More light to moderate snow is moving up from the south into Metro Detroit on your Thursday.

We may see a few lulls in the action both early and late afternoon and we may also see a little sleet and rain mixing in.

We expect primarily snow and when all is done, we should see 1-3" around town with a few isolated areas getting a touch more than 2-3" in Western Wayne and Washtenaw Counties, and near the Ohio border. Any rain or sleet will hurt those projections as highs loom in the low to mid 30s.

Friday and weekend forecast

A few lingering snow showers early tomorrow before things start to dry out a little for your Friday. Morning lows are near 30 degrees Friday with scattered snow showers likely. Most of your Friday is a dry day around SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario, but not a ton of sun and it will become breezy with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s degrees and winds SW 10-20 mph gusting a bit stronger.

Saturday starts dry with a chance for a light rain and snow mix or snow showers Saturday afternoon with highs in the upper 30s. Models show most of the showers moving along the I-94 corridor from west to east, so some of Metro Detroit may not get much of anything but clouds.

Sunday will be mostly dry with cooler air and a few flurries mid to upper 30s. 

Next week, Thanksgiving

It looks like a decent holiday week next week. Temps will be slowly warming into the mid 40s by midweek with a chance for a few showers Monday night and early Tuesday.  

An early look at Thanksgiving looks great for America’s Thanksgiving Parade with dry and mild conditions. We’ll keep you posted.
