DETROIT (WWJ) – While an early morning snowfall has drivers taking it slow Tuesday, the chilly weather is a perfect excuse to snuggle up with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day.
The WWJ-TV/CBS Detroit weather team expects light snow to fall throughout the morning with temperatures in the mid 20s, then a chance of light snow in the afternoon with highs 34 to 38. WWJ-TV Chief Meteorologist Jim Maddaus said snowfall will be pretty thin, with accumulations less than an inch.
It could be all that burning love, or maybe the sun, but Maddaus said the snow probably won’t be sticking around, as temperatures throughout the rest of the week will be in the high 30s. We could, however, expect to see some rain toward the end of the week.
