DETROITA High Wind Warning is in effect for Detroit and all of Southeast Michigan from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. today.

Welcome to Sunday, Motown.

Dangerous wind and wind gusts are likely the rest of the day. Please play it safe with wicked winds and high wind gusts. Rain moves out and temperatures drop after lunchtime. It becomes colder, tonight. Sunnier skies and calmer conditions come back the rest of this week

It remains windy Sunday afternoon. The mercury plummets after lunchtime from near 50° to near 40°F as wind speeds increase and wind gusts heighten.

Sustained winds with lows at 20 to 30 mph and wind gusts will be as high as 50 mph. Watch out for wind blown debris or downed power lines. If you come across any downed wires, please stay away and keep everyone far away and call the authorities immediately.

Also, with the start of Firearm Deer Hunting Season, falling branches and trees are a huge hazard.

Finally, it’s a good idea to charge the mobile devices early. If generators have to be used, make sure they are, at least, 25 feet away from your home. Extinguish any fires from candles or fireplaces before bed.

Sunset is at 5:11 p.m.
