Metro Detroit weather: Snow moves in both days this weekend

First chance of snow arrives Saturday afternoon

DETROIT – Skies will clear out more overnight Friday into Saturday, and that will allow temperatures to drop into the lower to mid-20s. The winds should relax overnight, so there won’t be much of a wind chill factor.

Some snow this weekend

Saturday will feature some sun in the morning with increasing clouds throughout the day.

The game at the Big House between Michigan and Ohio State looks to be mainly dry, but some snow will be moving in closer to the end of the game around 4 p.m.

Further down the road in East Lansing, Michigan State hosting Penn State will have a much better chance for snow during the game. This snow will continue through the evening and overnight hours, adding up all across Southeast Michigan.

More snow is likely on Sunday, mainly early in the day. However, some computer models hint at a few more snow showers later in the day, with the best chances for this second batch being in the North Zone.

By the time all is said and done, a solid 1-3 inches of snow is likely across the area on Sunday. Lesser amounts of accumulation are expected near the Ohio state line.

More snow Monday

Long range computer models bring us another disturbance later Monday, resulting in a few more snow showers. But from there, it looks like things will quiet down for the most part next week. Temperatures will warm up next week -- we go from the 30s this weekend, to the 40s next week.
