Snow-rain cycle likely to persist across lower Michigan this week

The Detroit News

Snow is falling in some Metro Detroit areas early Monday, but totals should stay around 2 inches before precipitation turns mainly to rain.

A winter weather advisory was in effect until 9 a.m. for much of southern lower Michigan. 

Up to 2 inches of snow is expected in some Metro Detroit areas Monday.

The rate of snowfall could exceed an inch an hour, according to the National Weather Service, so visibility for drivers could be an issue.

The area most likely to see higher snow totals includes the Interstate 94 to I-69 corridor.

The weather pattern could persist several times this week, according to the NWS. Snow in the overnight and early morning hours through Thursday is possible, before temperatures warm above freezing and rain persists.
