DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for March 29-30, 2022.

Ice/rain tonight thru Thursday

  • Precipitation moves in around midnight tonight, and could start off as light snow.
  • As warm air just above the surface starts to move in, precipitation will change over to rain… but with the surface still being at/below freezing, we’re likely to see freezing rain take over.
  • This freezing rain will continue to fall until around daybreak Wednesday. By that time the surface will start to warm above freezing, meaning whatever falls should stay liquid and not freeze.
  • Ice accumulation will be the biggest concern, as some spots in the north and west zones could see up to a quarter inch of ice. Wednesday morning drive will likely be slow, especially in these areas.
  • A couple of showers may linger through lunch time, but it looks like we’ll get a break for some dry time in the afternoon and early evening.
  • More rain returns Wednesday evening/overnight into early Thursday.

More rain/snow possible to end the week

  • Few lingering rain showers at times Thursday, but little impact.
  • Some models are squeezing out a few lake effect flakes on Friday, but like Thursday the impact should be minimal.

Wintry mix chance this weekend

  • Long range models trying to bring a weak disturbance through late Saturday/Sunday, but this is the first that we’ve seen of this really. So keeping an eye on it the next couple of days.

Sunset at 8 p.m.

  • The sun will set at 8 p.m. Saturday (April 2). It continues to set later and later through June 26.
