Sunday forecast

DETROIT – Sunday afternoon will be partly sunny and cold with highs in the upper 20s. Mother Nature still cooperates for families doing more Holiday shopping, searching for a Christmas tree or hanging decorations.

The Detroit Lions play the Philadelphia Eagles in Philly. Lions fans at the game will experience cold weather, too, with snow and ice possible at the end of the game. Anyone trying to get back to Detroit Sunday evening can expect delays.

The Motor City area has a chance of snow, also, but not until late Sunday evening and Monday morning. After 7pm, Sunday, cloudy skies will develop and flurries will march across the Ohio border into southern Michigan, including Lenawee and Monroe Counties. Temps will be in the 20s.

Overnight lows will be in the low 20s as light snow migrates over Detroit and all of Southeast Michigan Sunday night and early Monday morning. The storm responsible for the snow will move quickly, thus keeping accumulations near 1 inch in spots by dawn on Monday. This trace to an inch of fresh snow will stick to the ground since it has been frigid for a while. So drivers and pedestrians must remain alert during the Monday morning commute because roads and sidewalks will be slippery.

Monday afternoon will be drier with partly sunny skies and highs near 30 degrees.

The Arctic Express continues to roll over the region the rest of the week. Highs will be in the 20s and lows will be in the teens with daytime sunshine Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Because of the blustery conditions, wind chills will range from just below zero to the low teens. As always, residents will need to be careful with fireplaces and space heaters and keep pets indoors at night.
