Temps plummet Sunday night, snow falls Monday

Lows below 10


DETROIT – Dry conditions persist Sunday night and into Presidents Day, Monday. The mercury will descend rapidly into the single digits again with wind chills below zero. 

Clouds will gather Presidents' Day morning and snow will fall again in the afternoon. Highs will be near 25 degrees. This time, snow will be heavier and last longer giving a better chance of greater accumulation. Many areas may receive 1 to 2 inches of snow Monday afternoon then another 1 to 3 inches Monday night. Therefore, total accumulations may range from 2 inches to 5 inches by the end of Presidents' Day night. 

Tuesday and Wednesday will be sunnier with higher temperatures. The thermometer will reach the low 30s Tuesday and the upper 30s Wednesday. Thursday has a chance of rain with highs near 40 degrees or more. The last time Detroit saw 40 degrees or more was January 13th, over a month ago.
