Metro Detroit weather: 1 to 2 inches of snow expected this weekend
DETROIT (FOX 2) - Well, it was bound to happen and here it is: Saturday, Nov. 27 will bring our first chance at measurable snowfall in Metro Detroit with up to 2 inches of snow expected by the end of the day on Saturday.
After Friday's cloudy, breezy, and cold day saw some flurries, we'll see the real deal on Saturday as highs will barely get above freezing.
We start off the weekend with below-average temperatures and morning readings near 19 for a wind chill.
We'll max out at 35 degrees as a high and Saturday afternoon and evening. A low-pressure system will move in and we'll get periods of light snow accumulating between 1 and 2 inches in Metro Detroit.
Winter Weather Outlook: Mild December before blasts of polar cold in January
The farther north you live, the more likely you are to see more snow. Pontiac should expect 2 inches while Port Huron could get close to 3. Meanwhile, on the south side of the Metro, Monroe will get less than an inch.
Snowfall totals will be between 1 and 3 inches over the two days. High temperatures remain consistently low, in the mid 30s.
While that won't be much of a problem for most of us in Michigan, it will make the roads a bit slippery on Sunday morning.
