Bundle up! Bitter cold on tap for Wednesday

Temps could tie or break record


DETROIT – Cold temps greet us this morning following Tuesday's snow squalls.

If we drop below 11°, we will hit a new record low temperature in Detroit.

There is a very good chance we will break, or at least tie the record.

Skies are mostly clear and many suburbs are dropping into the single digits early.

It will feel very winter-like all day as highs will struggle to hit 30°, hovering in the upper 20s most of the afternoon with mostly sunny skies.

Winds will be switching from NW to SW 5-10 mph.

Metro Detroit will have low 40s on Thursday and upper 40s Friday with another storm moving in that looks like mainly rain.

This may start as a wintry mix mid morning Thursday but then plain rain showers with a high temp around 42° tomorrow.

There is a chance for a few periods heavier rain and scattered thunder for the early part of Friday before it clears in the morning and we warm up to a nice end of the work and school week. It will be breezy to windy Thursday and Friday and the warming winds may bring us to 50° Friday.

Saturday is tricky as computer models call for a chance of a wintry mix early in the day and then mostly cloudy with highs climbing back to near 40°. 

The outlook for Sunday and Monday (opening day at Comerica) looks good in the upper 40s Sunday to low 50s Monday with a slight chance for a light shower Monday during the later part of the Tiger's game.
