Metro Detroit weather: Flaky start, dry finish Monday

DETROIT – Overnight snow accumulated one to two inches on your car if it was parked outside, so allow extra time to sweep that off if you have to go out early this morning.

However, above-freezing pavement temperatures has mitigated most accumulation there. Any lingering snow (or light rain, which could mix in) will end this morning, with a few breaks of sun developing this afternoon. Highs in the mid to upper 40s (8 to 9 degrees Celsius). Wind becoming northwest at 5 to 10 mph.

Today’s sunrise is at 7:31 a.m., and today’s sunset is at 7:50 p.m.

Mostly cloudy Monday night, with some fog possible on the east side near the big lakes. Lows in the low 30s (0 degrees Celsius) with calm air.
