Metro Detroit Weather: Windy Wednesday, snow showers coming

Highs in the mid 30s

DETROIT – The winds are the biggest weather story for the rest of your Wednesday here around Metro Detroit and there is nothing violent to worry about.

We have temps 35-40°F for the rest of your afternoon but the winds keep wind chills mainly in the mid to upper 20s, so you’ll want to dress for that as you’re heading out and about.

Those winds switched from a warmer source, now blowing WNW 10-20 mph gusting 20-30 mph capable of knocking over a small garbage can or jostling your Holiday decorations.

A few light snow showers will move through the area too, leaving nothing more than a dusting as usual.

Thursday and Friday

Skies will partially clear overnight which allows temps to dip down into the 20s overnight creating wind chills in the teens to low 20s at times early Thursday.

We hope to see a nice mix of sun and clouds through the first half of the day tomorrow as clouds fill back in through the mid afternoon and evening bringing temps into that 35-40°F range.

Anyone hitting the roads Thursday night will run into some light snow showers after 9pm lasting into the early morning hours Friday. We should see some decent sun Friday with 20s only warming into the upper 30s through the afternoon with partly cloudy skies.


The weekend forecast looks very nice for SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario. You can expect sunshine Saturday as highs take aim at 40°F and Sunday will be mostly dry too with more cloud cover late in the day. We should see highs 45-50°F under partly sunny skies to end the weekend and rain showers are possible around or just after dinner time Sunday.

Next week

Rain is more likely Monday as we stay in the 40s. But, get ready for a big cool down starting Tuesday with some light snow accumulation likely in the middle of next week.
