DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for Feb. 3, 2021 afternoon and evening.
- Still on track with this system, but some minor adjustments may mean all snow or at least very little rain.
- Snow arrives Thursday after sunset, and sticks around through daybreak Friday. There may be a brief transition to rain mainly in the metro and south zones, but it’s a very close call.
- Could also be some lingering light snow through the day Friday, but most of what will add up on the ground comes during the overnight period.
- A good 2″ on average can be expected from this.
Weekend snow chances
- They’re not good chances for weekend snow, but they are there.
- Saturday a front comes through giving us the chance for a few flakes.
- A better shot for snow comes Sunday.
Super Bowl Sunday snow
- Long range models are differing a bit from their solution from the last two days. Something that we’ll have to keep an eye on.
- Still looks like a shovelable snow, maybe an inch or two inches.
Coldest air of season next week
- Still on track for the coldest air of the season early next week.
- Temperatures bottom out at or just above zero Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Wind chills could reach below zero.
Anniversary of the coldest temp recorded in Michigan
