Happy Sunday, Motown! It may be cold and a bit blustery, especially early, but we it will become drier by the minute. We have a good chance of seeing some sunshine as we recover from flooding rain and dangerous ice. More relief arrives early this week with temperatures above freezing when we go back to work and back to school.

Sunday morning will be icy, cold and windy. Scattered sleet and freezing rain will keep roads slippery and hazardous. Temperatures will be in the middle and upper 20s with wind chills in the teens. Use extreme caution while driving and walking, even if rain, snow or sleet stops falling. Also, grab your coats, hats and scarves to remain warm.

Sunrise is at 8:01 a.m.

Sunday afternoon will be partly sunny, cold and breezy. A slow thaw is possible with highs in the low 30s. Hold on to your favorite Red Wings coat, hat and gloves to stay warm outside Little Caesars Arena. They host the Buffalo Sabres at 5 p.m.
