While the weekend ended on a dry note, the return of snow to Detroit is on the horizon.

On the heels of the cold front Monday night, an Alberta Clipper will spread snow into the Great Lakes on Tuesday.

Detroit lies in the path of this clipper, and should see the snow fall Tuesday through Tuesday night.

The snow will generally amount to a coating to an inch or two around Metro Detroit, which is enough to cause some slick spots on area interstates and highways for commuters.

Farther to the north across northern and central Lower Michigan is where the clipper will drop up to 3 to 6 inches, leading to more disruptions to travel and daily routines.
