Metro Detroit weather: More snow showers and single-digit wind chills


Morning snow is mainly on the east side, or east of I-75 in Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties keeping the roads snow covered and dangerous as you head out and about this Tuesday morning. Be careful! Temps are in the teens to low 20s with wind chills in the single digits, and it will be even colder tomorrow morning. Snow showers could stack up another 1-4” in parts of the Thumb, or our North Zone as the Winter Storm Warning expires this morning. Scattered flakes elsewhere through about 8am, and then clearing skies believe it or not, so grab the shades because the reflection of the sun off of the snow can be intense. Highs will only hit mid to upper 20s today with winds WNW 5-15 mph gusting 15-25 mph and that keeps wind chills in the teens and single digits all day. Bundle up!

Wednesday starts with bitter cold temps in the single digits to low teens and still a bit of a breeze which means subzero wind chills for a few hours early tomorrow. We will start with sun and clouds but more clouds than sun through the afternoon without any more snow during the daylight hours. Highs will be in the neighborhood of 30°F and the winds S 5-12 mph gusting to 18 mph again keeps wind chills in the dangerous category tomorrow.

Watch out for a light snowmaker moving in late, late Wednesday into early Thursday which may lay down a coating and slow down that Thursday morning drive. But most of Thursday will be dry too with highs climbing slowly into the mid 30s as we slowly warm up. We should be a little warmer heading into next weekend with temps trying to reach 40°F Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We should see some light snow or wintry mix to begin next week, and we’ll keep you posted as we get closer.
