Winter Storm Watch Posted For Sunday

After a brief fling with Spring-like weather this week, Winter will return to southeastern Michigan Sunday.

Gone are the temperatures in the 50’s and the melting snow.  The National Weather Service has posted a Winter Storm Watch from noon Sunday until 7 a.m. Monday, President’s Day.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected.  

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.  Snow is expected to begin falling early Sunday afternoon.  One to three inches are possible before the snow changes over to sleet and freezing rain by early evening.  A quarter inch or more of ice is possible. 

There are two storm systems coming according to  Winter and Long Range Expert Meteorologist Joe Bastardi stated, “The pattern forward for the next four to six weeks, like much of the past six weeks, favors a weather battle zone for the Midwest and the Northeast.

AccuWeather says don’t be fooled by the springlike warmth of late in northern areas. The pattern can easily flip from 60- and 70-degree temperatures one day to a snowstorm and temperatures in the 20s the next from the northern Plains and Midwest to the mid-Atlantic and New England.
