The worst is over, but the wind continues Monday

Winds will be a constant 15-30 mph through the day


DETROIT – We still have winds whipping around for the rest of the day here in SE Michigan.

Those winds are shifting direction slightly and will be cooler breezes for the rest of the day coming from the WNW 15-30 mph.

The wind is dragging in lake effect cloud cover but we do see some breaks in the clouds. Temps are gradually falling through from the mid 40s into the upper 30s throughout the afternoon and evening. 

The lake effect snow machine is going up near Traverse City today and our computer model even throws a few flurries and/or light snow showers into our northern counties later this afternoon. Most of us won't see precipitation today, but don't be surprised if you see a light snow shower up near Flint, Lapeer, Port Huron and points northward.

Tuesday will be a much cooler day as the winds relax and the skies clear out. Morning lows will drop into the upper 20s tomorrow and afternoon highs will stop in the low 40s. Winds will flop around a bit from NW to SW but only 6-12 mph. We will warm into the upper 40s Wednesday afternoon as sunshine mixes with a few clouds.

Another storm will push through Thursday and Friday with a couple of rounds of rain. Later on Friday as temps cool, we may see some wintry mix to end the work and school week. That sets up a sharp drop in temps into this weekend. We will only see the 20s and 30s Saturday and Sunday ahead.
