Snow to taper off; weekend temps below average
The light snowfall that metro Detroiters woke up to Friday morning is starting to taper off with no major accumulations.
Forecasters say the rest of the day should be mostly clear with a chance of spotty flurries in some areas.
Snowfall totals were around 1 inch for most communities in southeast Michigan. Totals were higher further north in the Flint area, which saw 2.9 inches, according to Sara Pampreen, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
The high temperature for Friday is around 42 degrees with lows tonight in the 20s. The weekend won't be much warmer with Saturday's high at 36 and Sunday at 38 with a chance for snow Sunday night.
Pampreen said the temperatures this week have been below average for the region, which typically sees highs in the mid-50s by now.
The weather service can't yet predict when spring-like weather will settle in for Michigan, Pampreen said.
"We are looking at the possibility of warmer temps Wednesday into Thursday," Pampreen said, referencing the chance for 50-degree temperatures.
