The start of the workweek could feature the unexpected: the past week ends in sunshine and clear weather, and begins anew with snow.

The National Weather Service is forecasting up to 6 inches of snow in portions of Metro Detroit starting early Monday.  

A low-pressure system moving through the northern Ohio Valley is expected to drop  snow over the region starting at noon Monday and likely lasting all day, according to Ian Lee, a meteorologist with the weather service in White Lake Township. 

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 4 a.m. Tuesday for Huron, Tuscola, Sanilac, Lapeer and St. Clair counties. For Oakland and Macomb counties, the winter advisory lasts to 7 p .m. Monday with accumulations of snow from 2-4 inches.

The service predicts a 100% chance of snow, but the amount may vary slightly. 

“It is a tricky forecast. Even though we are close to the event, there’s still some moving parts in play right now,” said Lee.
