DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for March 1, 2021 afternoon and evening.

Local forecast

Few flakes ending shortly

  • There are a few flakes out there, but they’re wrapping up the next couple of hours.
  • Some of this snow is coming down at a decent rate. In those spots a quick reduction in visibility is possible. Otherwise really no impact from this snow.

Pretty quiet this week

  • We’re not seeing a lot of active weather this week. A cold front comes through later Wednesday, and behind that we could see a few flakes squeeze out Thursday, but little if anything.

Warm Wednesday, then back to reality

  • We’re near 50 degrees Wednesday, then after the cold front moves through we’re in the upper 30s and lower 40s for the rest of the week.
