So far, it looks like Mother Nature is easing us into the winter season.

Snow will move into the region this afternoon and will increase in intensity right in time for the Monday evening rush hour commute.

According to the National Weather Service in Detroit, light snow will spread into southeast Michigan late this morning and into early afternoon with only light accumulations through about 4 p.m.

After 4 p.m., snowfall will increase in intensity, and a general one to three inches of snow will fall into the evening hours.

Motorists are advised to use caution this evening and to plan ahead.

Snow will then taper off by early Tuesday morning.

Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is inviting the community to attend a Dec. 7 public information meeting to learn about the 2019 reconstruction of Runway 3L-21R and its associated taxiways.

The meeting will be held at Wayne County Community College District’s Downriver Campus–Ray Mix Room, 21000 Northline Road in Taylor from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Attendees will gain a better understanding of the project by viewing informative displays and speaking with airport staff members and their design team. Reconstruction of Runway 3L-21R and the surrounding taxiways is necessary because they are approaching the end of their useful life.

“We are conducting this informational session because we want to make sure our neighbors are aware of major construction projects at Detroit Metropolitan Airport,” said Airport Authority CEO Joseph Nardone.

The project is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2019 and wrap up by winter 2020.
