DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for Jan. 26, 2022, afternoon and evening.

Snow returns Thursday

  • Next shot for snow is Thursday.
  • While there may be a few flakes during the late morning/early afternoon, any real accumulation comes in the evening.
  • Dusting to half an inch possible, with higher amounts near I-69, lesser amounts in the south zone.

Cold sticks around

  • Overnight lows will be in single digits the next few days (Friday morning the exception), but when you factor in the wind, it’s going to feel even colder.
  • Wind chills 0 to -10 the next few mornings.

Snow chances Sunday

  • Models continue to keep most of the snow to our north, but some of these runs have some of the snow clipping us.
  • Still a good deal to shake out with this, but at this point we’re keeping the chance for some snow in the forecast on Sunday.

Warmer with rain next week

  • Temperatures climb into the middle 30s Tuesday, lower 40s Wednesday.
  • With the warmer air we’re expecting rain.
  • It’s mainly a Wednesday event, though some of it could get here late Tuesday.
  • What happens on the back side of this rain Thursday/Friday is still a bit of a question mark (snow/freezing rain), but safe to say the weather will be more impactful those days.
