Last year's wimpy winter will not be a repeat for Michigan, if this week is any indication.
Following Christmas Eve's traffic-clogging snowfall – which ranged throughout Metro Detroit from a dusting to several inches – residents of Berkley and Huntington Woods can expect significant snow Wednesday and Thursday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the area beginning at 4 p.m. Wednesday and lasting through 7 a.m. Thursday.
"Snow is expected to develop late this afternoon. This snowfall will become moderate to briefly heavy at time through the evening hours," the forecasting agency warns. "Brisk northeast winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour will also cause blowing and drifting of the snow, along with reduced visibilities of a half-mile or less."
The high Wednesday will be 32 degrees with a 100 percent chance of snow, according to the National Weather Service; the high Thursday also will be 32 degrees with snow likely. The forecast says more white stuff could fall through Saturday.
