Detroit — Snow showers blanketing Metro Detroit on Tuesday are expected to continue to diminish overnight.

An average of 2 to 3 inches fell throughout the area, according to the National Weather Service. A winter weather advisory for the region expired at 7 p.m.

The next shot at snow will be late Wednesday, said Dan Thompson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

Temperatures will drop to the lower teens overnight with the wind chill around zero, Thompson said. Wednesday will have highs in the upper teens, as an “arctic blast” brings colder air from northern Canada. (No, this isn’t the same as the Polar Vortex of 2015.)

“The wind child going to stay in single digits all day,” Thompson said.

On Thursday, high temperatures should reach the low 30s. By the end of the work week, temperatures will reach the high 30s.
