DETROIT (WWJ) - Metro Detroit is preparing for a blast of wintry weather in the coming days.

Forecasters say it will start toward the end of the weekend when snow showers move over southeast Michigan late Sunday night.

"Veteran's Day is going to have some snow around and we're looking at accumulations, potentially part of the area could end up with several inches before tapering to flurries Monday night," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Heather Zehr.

After the snowfall, temperatures will drop down into the 20s and stay there for a couple days, with wind chills in the teens. 

"We'll have sun and some clouds, but it will still be brisk and very cold," said Zehr. 

The thermometer should climb back above freezing by Thursday, but temperatures will tap out around 36 degrees. 

Here's a look at the forecast from the WWJ Weather Team:

Sunday -- A chance of drizzle and showers in the afternoon, then snow showers likely between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. High 45. low 30.
