This is the possible max rainfall from one model. the attention then will turn from the rain tomorrow to a upper level trough associated with a low pressure system will bring snow to much of the area. The big question is how much and where will the snow fall?

The areas in the picture shaded in blue have been placed under a Winter Storm Watch for 4-8″ of snow.

The areas under the watch will most likely see a heavy wet snow develop Thursday into Thursday night. Most areas will see 3-6″ with isolated spots up to 8″ possible. Areas in a line from Kalamazoo to Flint north to the watch area we amounts will be in the 1-4″ range, and south of those areas including Detroit metro 1-2″ will probably be the max. This is a tough storm to call because we are into the month of April, and ground temperatures are warmer and our air temperatures are relatively warm. Any change in the path can and will change the forecast for your particular area.

This is the GFS model output for potential snow.  Look for the snow to taper off early Friday morning for most of the area. In areas that receive the most snow will have some travel disruptions for the morning rush hour. Stay tuned into MFWW for the latest updates.
