Metro Detroit weather: Possible record lows ahead

Wind chills below zero most of night

DETROIT – We’ll be rivaling a record Monday night, but we’re on our way up (slowly).

As skies stay mostly clear, temperatures will drop to our nighttime lows shortly after midnight. They won’t be much better than Monday morning’s lows. Temperatures will be on either side of zero, with wind chills at minus 5 to minus 10 degrees for most of the night.

Tuesday will be on the dry side, too, as highs improve to the upper 20s. Other than some midday clouds, we’ll still see a decent amount of sunshine. Winds will be stronger Tuesday, topping 20 mph at times. That will keep wind chills in the single digits and teens throughout the day.

Wednesday through Friday, highs will hit 32 in the afternoon, with morning lows rising to the 20s by the end of the week.

Our warmest temperatures will arrive for Christmas Day. Highs will hit 40 on the 25th, with rain expected. In fact, we’ll stay above normal for the first part of next week.
