Metro Detroit weather: Another round of snow begins this evening, possible for morning commute

Light snow showers return Wednesday evening

DETROIT – The shovels are still warm from digging on Veterans Day, but we’re already staring at another chance of snow. This one will be a bit different, however -- meaning a lot of us won’t see any accumulation at all. Those who do get snowflakes will add very little to what’s already out there.

Snow for morning commute

Expect snow to start developing in the late evening in some spots. We’ll see more flakes through Wednesday evening, leading to the morning drive. But these will be scattered light snow showers.

Not everyone will see precipitation. Maximum amounts will be a dusting. Most of the activity should be wrapped up before the end of the commute, leading to dry conditions and plenty of clouds for the balance of Thursday.

Dry stretch begins Thursday

After the light snow moves Thursday morning, we’ll be dry into early next week. Tuesday looks like our next possibility of snowfall, and even that’s not a solid chance. If that doesn’t happen, next Thursday will be the day. But that will be rain, not snow. Plus, both events won’t have much moisture.

Slow thaw

We’ve definitely seen the worst of the cold air with Tuesday and Wednesday’s record low temperatures. We’ll wake up to temperatures in the mid-20s Thursday, so that’s an improvement. But it’s still 10 degrees below normal. The afternoon will bring us a few hours at or above freezing at least.

Weekend highs will stay in the 30s, with some sunshine.

Warmer air will arrive next week as temperatures in the 40s return to our corner of the state. In fact, there are at least three days next week during which we’ll stay above freezing the entire day. Check the 10-day forecast for all the numbers.
