DETROIT – It’s a snowy Veteran’s Day with light to moderate snow moving at us all day today bringing several inches of snow, and some of it will be sticking to the streets.

Winter storm on Monday

Most of Metro Detroit is in a Winter Weather Advisory for 3-6” of snow creating dangerous travel all day today and it lasts until midnight. Parts of the Thumb in our North Zone are under a Winter Storm Warning for 5-10” of snow and blowing snow.

Huron County, including Bad Axe, could see up to 20 inches of snow.

Temps will only reach freezing this afternoon but with winds NNE 5-15 mph gusting 20-25 mph, wind chills will be in the low to mid 20s most of the day. Be careful driving today, and be watchful of those other cars out there that may not heed our warnings.

Tuesday and beyond

Snow showers will diminish late tonight and overnight, but it’s still going to be a bit slick driving early tomorrow with temps in the teens to low 20s first thing Tuesday around Metro Detroit. It will be a dry day tomorrow, but cool with highs in the upper 20s, mostly cloudy skies turn partly cloudy, and the breezes will keep it feeling even colder. We will see winds WNW 5-15 mph gusting 20-30 mph make it feel like the teens on the bare skin if you’re going to be outside for any stretch of time tomorrow.

Wednesday is still cool, but dry with mostly sunny skies and morning lows in the single digits to low teens… brrrr! Sunshine will give way to only partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 20s to near 30F.

There is a light snowmaker moving in late, late Wednesday into early Thursday which may slow down that Thursday morning drive. But most of Thursday will be dry too with highs climbing slowly into the mid 30s or warmer. We should be a little warmer heading into next weekend with temps trying to reach 40F Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We may end the weekend with a light wintry mix and we’ll keep you posted.
