The same system that slammed Chicago Monday afternoon with blinding, heavy snow will target Detroit during the first part of Monday night.

A snowfall of 3 to 6 inches is forecast. In some communities much of the snow will fall in only a few hours at the rate of 1 to 3 inches per hour for a time.

In a flash, roads can become snow covered and very slippery. Flight delays and cancellations are likely to mount in a hurry.

Temperatures will recover to or above seasonable levels Tuesday through Thursday.

The next storm system will bring mostly rain to the area on Thursday, but chillier air will follow over the weekend.
