Expect 2-7 Inches of Snow Wednesday in Dearborn

Snow will start falling in the afternoon and continue into the evening.

Last year's wimpy winter will not be a repeat for Michigan, if this week is any indication.

Following Christmas Eve's traffic-clogging snowfall—which ranged from a dusting to several inches in Metro Detroit—residents of Dearborn and surrounding areas can expect significant snow on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the area, and is predicting up to seven inches of snowfall on Wednesday.

Flurries could begin overnight, turning into a steady snowfall by the afternoon. The chance of snow, according to NWS, is 100 percent.

Temperatures will drop into the high 20s by 10 a.m., and winds will pick up throughout the day, gusting as high as 26 miles per hour. Two to four inches of snow is expected in the afternoon, followed by another 1-3 in the evening.

The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, St. Clair and Lenawee counties.

A snow emergency had not been issued for Dearborn as of Tuesday night. Watch Dearborn Patch on Wednesday for more information.

Hey Vincent, let's keep this civil. There's no need to get angry because someone likes snow! I'm excited about it, too - just not driving in it.

I love the snow! I like it a lot better when I am in the country because the whiteness of the snow lasts longer and looks so clean. I understand that those who have to be out in it as part of their job or drive long distances feel differently. But, Right now I am watching the beauty of God's nature while sitting in my living room in front of my fireplace and drinking hot coffee. it's absolutely beautiful
