Snow is expected to move into Metro Detroit on Sunday evening, followed by more cold temperatures.

“We’re looking at mostly a long period of light snow overnight,” said Dan Thompson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s White Lake Station.

Thompson said the weather forecast for the area calls for at least 2 inches of snow by 11 a.m. Monday, which could make for a messy commute.

So far this year, Metro Detroit has received about 10 inches of snowfall. By this time last year, more than 39 inches of snow had fallen, according to the weather service.

Monday’s temperatures are expected to hit a high of about 30 degrees, but they’ll fall into the mid-20s in the afternoon hours, Thompson said.

Colder air is set to return to the region Monday night and cold temperatures will likely remain through mid-week.

Temperatures Tuesday may reach lows of zero to 10 below, the agency predicts. However, the weather service doesn’t anticipate issuing a wind chill advisory.

On Wednesday, highs should reach the teens again but plummet and result in very cold night, the NWS said.
