Severe winter storm to hit Metro Detroit before Christmas: Snow total predictions, timeline
All systems are go for one of the severest winter storms to ever hit our area. And I say this not based upon the amount of snow we’ll get but, rather, based upon the severity of the overall conditions that we will experience, not to mention the timing…on the huge travel day just before Christmas.
Metro Detroit weather: Tracking storms as Autumn awaits
We had to close a few windows early this Tuesday morning if you opened them as the cold front came through late yesterday. Temperatures here in Metro Detroit are in the middle and upper 50s outside your home under mostly clear skies and a lighter wind NW 5-10mph and with some of that patchy fog. Fog is unavoidable for parts of our area following a little bit of rain and a dip in morning temps. It will warm nicely throughout the day today with sun and a shift in the wind.
Metro Detroit weather: Severe storm threat Thursday with more rain Friday
Scattered rain and thundershowers overnight are fading this morning but we do have some drizzle and isolated showers on Storm Tracker 4 Live Radar. So, your morning drive will be a little slippery for some around Metro Detroit. Temperatures are still hanging in the low to mid 60s thanks to a warm front that moved south to north earlier this morning as the spark for some of these showers. We will have slightly warmer and more unstable air around our area today with a threat for severe storms later on. It will not be an all-day washout today but, keep the umbrella handy today and tomorrow as these on and off rain and thundershowers are going to be touch and go for the next 36 hours. Conditions will temporarily dry out during and after our morning commute today and temps will start to take off.
