Snow to stick around region until Friday
Winter is clinging to Michigan.
The National Weather Service has issued another winter weather advisory, the latest one until 6 p.m. Thursday for the Thumb region and Interstate 69 corridor, where 3-5 inches of snow are possible.
Meanwhile, Metro Detroit could see 1-2 inches, with slightly higher amounts closer to M-59, meteorologist Bryan Tilley said.
"The activity will be working its way south during the day," he said. "We’re anticipating it'll be weak enough that accumulations will be below the advisory threshold for the northern suburbs of Detroit down through the Metro area."
The forecast calls for most of the snow to arrive after 8 a.m. with wind gusts nearing 20 mph and highs hovering in the 30s. The dusting should leave the region by Thursday evening as the thermometer dip into the 20s.
Friday should be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 30s, slightly below average for early March.
On Wednesday, more than 6 inches of snow fell on parts of northern Livingston and Oakland counties.
Flurries were prevalent farther south; Detroit Metro Airport recorded less than an inch by nightfall, weather service records show.
Metro Detroit's average monthly snowfall in March is about 7 inches.
