FORECAST: Major snowstorm unfolding

Today is a First Alert Weather Day!

A Winter Storm Warning continues for all of southeast Michigan until 7 AM Monday.

It's been more than 10 years since we had a snowstorm drop more than a foot of snow at Metro Airport in Romulus, where official weather records are kept for Detroit. However, the potential for 8"-12" exists across most of the metro Detroit with even higher amounts possible in the southern half of the metro region.

NEXT 48 HOURS:

Today: Snow likely with 2"-5" likely during the day with heaviest snowfall late in the day and highest amounts south of Detroit.  Highs: 22-27 early, then falling to near 20 by sunset / Winds: NE 10-20 gusting to 25 late

Tonight: Snow early, with another 4"-7" likely, ending after 3 am. Considerable blowing and drifting of snow will make travel even more difficult. Lows: 8-12 / Winds: NE 15-25  producing wind chills as cold as 15 below zero

Monday: Snow ending by about 9 am, turning partly to mostly sunny but very cold. Highs: 13-17 / Winds: N-NW 10-25 and gusty. Winds chills will be below zero in the morning.

Monday night: Partial clearing, very cold.  Lows: -2 to 3 / Winds: SW 5-10

Tuesday: Clouds increase, not quite as cold. Highs: 19-23 / Winds: SW 5-15
