Metro Detroit weather: Wind chill warning ends today, warm up on the way

Wind chill warning extended to 2 p.m.

DEROIT – The Wind Chill Warning has expired.  

However, the NWS has issued a Wind Chill Advisory until 5:00 AM south of 8 Mile, and until 9:00 AM north of 8 Mile.  

Now that wind chills have warmed above -25°, the warning criteria is no longer being met. However, since wind chills will be between -15° and -24° through the night, the advisory was necessary.

 It’s still dangerously cold outside, but less dangerous than earlier.

Air temps will warm into the low single digits and winds SW 7-17 mph keep those wind chills in the danger zone but improving hour by hour.

Plenty of sun mixed with a little cloud cover and no threat for wet weather today.


There's a fast moving snow maker moving along and south of our border with Ohio, and some South Zone snow is possible before sunrise.

This is light stuff but will be slippery for anyone traveling south tomorrow morning. Wind chills will be around -5°F to -10°F in the morning so schools should be back in session. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to maybe upper teens with lighter winds SE 5-10 mph and a mix of sun and clouds.

Saturday, Sunday

Groundhog Day Saturday brings a surge in temps and clouds. It will be mostly cloudy with lows in the single digits to low teens and highs in the mid 30s. Maybe we get lucky and no shadow for the forecasting rodent.

Sunday is another mostly cloudy to overcast day with warming winds and some good melting. We may get a few light rain showers or drizzle with highs in the 40s.


How about 50°F Monday? There's a chance, but also a good chance for afternoon rain and gusty winds.
