Where does the snow stand, what comes next

Weather 4Warn – Heavy snowfall will continue to fall at a rate of up to one inch per hour until about 5 p.m. here in the Detroit metro area.

The snow should start to thin during the evening drive, but a heavy layer of wet snow will continue to affect the evening drive. Even if the roads look wet, keep in mind that slush is still frozen and slippery. Numerous spin out accidents were reported this afternoon throughout the region.


The snow accumulation will end around 10 p.m. tonight. A few lingering showers will persist at times, but the heavy snowfall will be over. With temperatures remaining at or just below zero tonight, the salt should work just fine and the plows can get to work before the morning commute.


Cloudy with a few showers. Time in the low 30s.


We start out dry, but a mower system comes through later in the day. And that’s exactly what it does, clips us with a light accumulation of snow. Temperatures hover around the freezing point, so the roads might be a bit slippery for the evening drive.

Another even bigger system is coming Saturday evening and Sunday morning, bringing us another chance for snow. More on that tonight at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Local 4 News.
