DETROIT – Snow moved in overnight, and a heavy band developed as it progressed northward.
South of 8 Mile Road, there will be little additional accumulation today -- perhaps just a dusting. North of 8 Mile -- and especially north of M-59 -- snow will be more persistent, and an additional inch or two is possible.
Like yesterday, I have put my forecast for TOTAL snow today in a special 4Zone Forecast that you can see for yourself on ClickOnDetroit.com and on our free Local4Casters weather app.
One additional point: wind blowing off of Lake Huron could generate a few lake effect snow bands, which would enhance the snow totals in a few parts of the Thumb.
Winter weather advisory
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory until 4 p.m. Tuesday for areas generally south of M-59, and until 11 p.m. for areas generally north of M-59.
Temperatures today will only rise a couple of degrees, perhaps to near freezing (0 degrees Celsius), with a northeast wind becoming north at 10 to 15 mph.
Today’s sunrise is at 7:52 a.m., and today’s sunset is at 5:40 p.m.
Snow diminishes Tuesday night, with lows in the low to mid 20s (-5 degrees Celsius).
Mostly cloudy on Wednesday, with highs in the upper 20s (-2 to -1 degree Celsius). Becoming partly cloudy and much colder Wednesday night, with lows in the low to mid teens (-11 degrees Celsius).
Thursday, Friday forecast
Partly cloudy Thursday and Friday, with highs in the mid 20s (-4 degrees Celsius), and lows Thursday night again in the low to mid teens (-11 degrees Celsius).
There are some changes offered by the computer models in terms of their handling of our next storm, and the biggest change is in slowing it down. I now think we’ll be dry on Saturday, with increasing afternoon clouds. Highs in the upper 20s (-2 to -1 degree Celsius).
Sunday looks cloudy, with snow perhaps developing late in the day. Highs in the low 30s (0 degrees Celsius).
