    A major snowstorm traveling across the country this weekend and into Monday will pass over the city bringing some snow to the area.

    While snow will fall throughout much of the central Plains and the Northeast, Detroit will have the return of some sunshine by Monday.

    The winter storm will only graze Detroit Sunday morning but one to three inches is likely around the city. However, roads may still become slippery during and after the storm.

    For traveling Sunday or Monday morning, flight delays are likely as the winter storm moves into some of the major cities in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

    Temperatures will drop throughout the weekend, struggling to reach the 20-degree mark on Sunday.

    The chance of snow will return to the city by Wednesday.
