DETROIT -

Bundle up and prepare for the coldest stretch of days that we’ve seen in two years.

We will start MLK Day with air temperatures in the low teens, but wind chills will be near zero as you step outside.

There will be scattered light snow in spots during the morning hours. By afternoon, snow becomes a bit more widespread but it looks like an inch or less through the early afternoon.

Highs will only reach 20 degrees at best but west winds 10-20 mph will keep wind chills near zero to 5 above all day.

  Tuesday will be the coldest of the days ahead with single digit lows and morning wind chills ranging from -10 to -15.

A few flurries or light snow showers with cloud cover keeps high temps in the low to mid-teens and dangerous wind chills all day.

More snow on the way Wednesday, so check out radar and chilly temps in the 7 Day at on the weather page of ClickOnDetroit.com.
