Metro Detroit weather: Temperatures drop as arctic assault hits Michigan

Dry weather for most of week

DETROIT – After nearly a foot of snow fell in spots around Metro Detroit, we’ll dry out for much of the week. At the same time, we won’t be getting any warmer, as an arctic assault barrels into Michigan.

Clouds will break up a bit Monday night as temperatures drop to the mid- and upper teens. Winds will be on the light side, at least.

On Tuesday, temperatures will barely get to 30 in the afternoon. Wind chills will be around 20 degrees. We might see a few flurries or a quick snow shower, but no accumulation.

Numbers keep going down for the next few days. Highs in most locations will be in the teens for Wednesday through Friday. Morning lows will be single numbers, with wind chills dipping below freezing on Thursday and early Friday.

Temperatures will recover somewhat, barely peaking above 32 on Saturday, but that will bring our next big weather-maker. It’s too early to tell whether it will be rain, snow or a mix of both.

Next week will stay below average as we head toward Christmas Day.
