Snow returning later on Thursday, another 1"+ coming

A Winter Weather Advisory that had been issued for all of southeast Michigan has expired, but we're expecting some lingering snow showers throughout the day Thursday and into Friday. 

All of southeast Michigan has some snow on the ground this morning. Heavier snow fell in the southern areas of metro Detroit, with a majority of the school closings in that area

The snow will move into Canda by 10 a.m. Thursday. We'll see temps in the low 30s throughout the day with scattered snow showers. 

But then the bigger snow comes back. 

More snow from the same system will start later tonight with flurries and snow throughout the evening and night.

How much snow are we looking at? By 8 p.m. Thursday we expect to have 3.2 inches of snow on the ground in Detroit. That's right on target with what we've forecasted at 3 to 5 inches of snow. 

Again, areas in the south will be seeing higher accumulation. 

But we're STILL not done. Overnight Thursday into Friday, we'll get another half-inch to inch-and-a-half.

The good news? will warm up eventually but not until after the weekend. We'll be pretty cold with temps below freezing all weekend, so get out and shovel/snowblow! Early next week we'll get above freezing and it will start to melt some of that snow away.
