DETROIT - A winter weather advisory is in effect for all of southeast Michigan, starting at 11 p.m. Monday and ending by midday Tuesday.

Dry conditions won't last past midnight. Expect snow to develop after 10 p.m. and last until after Tuesday's morning commute. That will give us 1-4 inches of snow, most of which will be on the ground by the time the morning drive gets going.

We broke down the snow forecast in our 4ZONE forecast. Temperatures will be rising overnight to the low 30s by 8 a.m.

Temperatures will continue rising Tuesday to a late high around 40 degrees. Plenty of rain will follow the snow, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Precipitation should wrap up by midnight, but winds will be cranking. Expect gusts over 40 mph on Tuesday evening.

Once temperatures rise above freezing, they won't return to that mark until early Friday morning. That means there will be more rain, not snow, on Thursday. Temperatures will be at their warmest, hitting the mid-40s, in the afternoon.

Beyond that, a cooler weekend is in store. Check out the 10-day forecast for those numbers.
