Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect south of 8 Mile Rd. until 11PM.

Our quick but powerful winter storm is winding down. Conditions will improve rapidly through the night, but temperatures won’t recover until the weekend.

Tonight, as the snow ends by midnight, clouds will break up overnight. Temperatures will drop to the mid-and-upper teens, but with wind speeds of 15-25 mph, wind chill readings will be close to zero. 

Wednesday, we’ll start out with mostly sunny skies and add a few clouds into the afternoon. Highs will get to the mid-and-upper 20s by afternoon.

Thursday, another snowmaker will roll south of us. Right now it looks like we’ll just get brushed by the top side of the snow. That could lead to minor accumulations of an inch or less, and mainly south of Detroit. Highs will be in the upper 20s.

Sunshine comes back Friday, but that only gets us to 30 degrees in the afternoon. The warmup gets going this weekend. Highs Saturday will finally get back above freezing, with highs in the mid-and-upper 30s. We’re expecting a quick clipper with another inch of snow then too. Sunday we’ll be dry, with a high of 40 degrees.

Fifties arrive early next week. Check out those numbers in the 10 Day Forecast.
