Occasional light rain will become mixed with and change to snow overnight with any accumulation an inch or less on grassy areas. Easter looks similar especially across the metro Detroit northward in Southeast Lower Michigan. Temperatures will be below normal over the weekend.
March was a rather unusually calm month over the region with well below normal precipitation and snow along with below normal temperatures. The pattern followed previous analogue patterns discussed in my Spring Outlook and my forecast. March was anticipated to contain below normal temperatures and precipitation.
Temperatures: Below into mid Spring (March-April)
Snowfall: Snowfall should end up around normal to above over the
southern sections of Southeast Lower Michigan and normal to
locally below northern sections for the cold season.
Precipitation: Normal to below.
That's not to say the month didn't contain some nice spring days but the colder than normal days out did any warmer with readings averaging two to three degrees below normal. This is certainly better than last March when March averaged eight and a half degrees below normal with much more snowfall /12.5"/ at Detroit.
