The wintry weather is part of a widespread blanket of white set to fall in the Midwest this weekend.
Southeast Michigan—like much of the Midwest—can expect a fresh blanketing of snow Friday. According to the National Weather Service, Dearborn and surrounding areas can expect snowfall to start in the morning and continue into the afternoon, with a total accumulation of 1-3 inches expected. The precipitation could continue Sunday, with a 60 percent chance of snow and sleet in the area that evening. Another 1-2 inches of precipitation are expected.

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.

Expect snow showers and high wind throughout the day Friday, the official first day of winter.
Winter weather has arrived to Michigan right on time. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of southeastern, western and mid Michigan Friday.

According to the NWS, Michigan can expect to see strong winds coming in from the northwest throughout the afternoon and evening. Gusts could be as high as 45 miles per hour. Snow showers will continue through the morning, but should stop by early evening. We can expect to see snow accumulation of around an inch in most areas, including Dearborn. Some areas of Michigan, however, could see as much as three inches of snow. The Dearborn Police Department …

The National Weather Service says to expect the white stuff this week in southeast Michigan.
Those dreaming of a white Christmas this year might see nothing short of a miracle Tuesday morning. The weather report for Dearborn is calling for rain showers on Thursday afternoon that will turn into snow by Friday, with temperatures ranging from 35 to 27 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. The chance for precipitation is 100 percent on Thursday and 70 percent on Friday. There could be as much as an inch of snow by Saturday morning—not much, but enough to make Bing Crosby happy. If there is snow on the ground this weekend, it will likely hang around until the big day because temperatures are expected to range from 26 degrees Saturday night to 35 degrees on Christmas Day. As we head into winter, the Michigan Department of …
