Metro Detroit weather: Arctic air arrives for a cold weekend
Good Friday morning! Conditions are fairly quiet around Metro Detroit with temps in the lower 30s falling slowly into the upper 20s this morning under cloudy skies and a few flakes and flurries. A cold front is pushing through as we speak which will keep those temps from moving very much through the day and that front will spark a few flakes and flurries, but the roads are in good shape and should stay that way even with isolated flurries and light snow chances. Lake effect snow showers in the Thumb will cause some tricky travel on the shorelines of Lake Huron this morning but most of Metro Detroit will only see remnants of that in the form of mainly flurries.
