Frigid Sunday morning, snow at night

Highs near 30


DETROIT – Detroit and Southeast Michigan remain locked in the icebox Sunday morning with temps in the low teens. Wind chills will be in the single digits and near zero. Dry roads will great motorists on the way to Sunday services or returning to Michigan from the Spartans-Buckeyes football game in Indy. Skies will be sunny at breakfast time and partly cloudy by lunch.

Sunday afternoon will be cloudy and cold with highs in the upper 20s. Flurries and light snow will develop. Families doing more Holiday shopping, searching for a Christmas tree or hanging decorations must use caution on any slippery streets or sidewalks.

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.

Snowy conditions persist Sunday evening through Monday morning. Flurries and light snow will march across the region with only a few dry slots. 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.
