DETROIT (WWJ) - Another winter storm is on the way — expected to dump up to half-a-foot of snow on southeast Michigan. 

AccuWeather Meteorologist Dean DeVore says we're looking at around three to six inches of accumulation in the metro Detroit area mid-week.

"It looks like to snow pushes in tomorrow (Wednesday) night and continues into Thursday morning," DeVore said, speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950. "It's going to come down at a pretty good clip, that three to six inches, before it tapers into snow showers later in the day on Thursday."

AccuWeather says communities south of I-94 are expected to get the most snow. 

The biggest concern is potentially slippery, treacherous travel conditions for drivers at the height of the storm. 

"Be ready: It's going to be a real white knuckler, I think, for the overnight hours Wednesday into Thursday morning's commute," DeVore said. "Thursday morning looks like a real mess."

Also on the way this week: a couple of bitter cold nights. AccuWeather is calling for low temperatures in the single digits both Thursday and Friday. 

Here is the metro Detroit forecast for this week:

Wednesday: 37°Hi; RealFeel® 32°. Mostly cloudy
