A cold afternoon in Detroit.

Since the first major snowfall on Dec. 9, Metro Detroit has received almost 12 inches of snow in a week.  

For the next couple of days, Metro Detroit can expect cold temperatures with a chance of more snowfall starting Friday night until a dry spell Tuesday through Thursday. 

"We usually average at one or two snow storms with over 6 inches through the season so we are on usual track. If we had three or four storms, that would be unusual," said Alex Manion, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

Through the weekend, there is a chance of a rain/snow mix of precipitation and starting Tuesday, temperatures will warm back up to "above average seasonals," Manion said. 

Skies clear of storm, light snow coming


Friday night: Low 23 degrees overnight with flurries accumulating to an inch. 

Saturday: Morning snow and cloudy throughout the day. High of 31 degrees and low around 25 degrees. 

Sunday: High of 37 degrees and the low dips to 20 degrees in the evening with a 40 percent chance of a rain/snow mix in the afternoon. 

Monday: Possible morning hours rain but mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of snow throughout the day. High 39 degrees and possibly 40 degrees overnight. 

Tuesday: Warm back up to 41 degrees, partly cloudy. No snow expected until Thursday.
