Light rain Monday evening in Metro Detroit will give way to fog and prolonged windy conditions overnight.
"The wind is going to make it feel pretty harsh," said Bryan Tilley, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.
Temperatures in Metro Detroit were at 35 degrees Monday evening and expected to drop into the 20s overnight. Wind gusts will begin to increase and reach 40 miles per hour Tuesday, Tilley said.
"Wind chill temps will be in the teens," he said. "That will make it all the more harsh for anyone outdoors."
Some areas, mostly north of Metro Detroit, could get a light dusting of snow. That's much different from elsewhere in the state — parts of the Upper Peninsula, particularly near Lake Superior, could get up to a foot of snow from a Midwest late-winter storm.
Up to 2 to 4 inches are expected late tonight with additional snow of 10-20 inches expected through Wednesday afternoon, the weather service said.
Detroit Metropolitan Airport has recorded 47.1 inches of snow this winter, up from the average of 38.3 inches, said Rachel Kulik, weather service meteorologist.
In the Upper Peninsula, the storm is expected to move across the area starting Monday night, with amounts reaching 3 to 6 inches. Snow is to continue Tuesday and Wednesday, with an additional 6 to 20 inches expected near Houghton, Baraga and the Porcupine Mountains.
Heavy lake-effect snow is expected along Lake Superior. Occasional white-out conditions are forecast Tuesday and Wednesday.
In the western side of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, rain changing to snow is expected to bring 1 to 2 inches of snow. Additional snow is expected Tuesday.
