    Snowstorm to Start Detroit's Weekend

    A snowstorm will kick off the weekend in Detroit with another major winter storm in the works for the middle of next week.

    A storm much larger than the one that dropped an inch on the city early Thursday night will bring moderate snow to Detroit Friday night into Saturday.

    Motorists and pedestrians should be prepared for slippery travel into the weekend, while flight delays can result.

    Due to sleet and rain mixing with the snow, totals in Metro Detroit will be held to 2 to 4 inches.

    Higher amounts are expected across the northern and western suburbs where the storm will remain an all-snow event.

    In the wake of the storm, cold air will settle in, but not to the extreme of several events during January.

    Additionally, winds during and in the wake of the storm will be relatively light, so blowing and drifting snow will be minimal compared to the many Alberta Clipper storms that visited over much of the past month.

    Confidence is growing for a more significant snowstorm to unfold across Detroit Tuesday night.
