Metro Detroit weather: Bitter cold, snow stick around

Thursday highs in mid 20s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Thursday afternoon!

The winds will relax later today, but there’s enough of a breeze coming off of Lake Michigan to keep a few lake effect snow bands blowing our way.

Skies will stay mostly cloudy with just a few snowflakes and flurries flying. High temperatures will sit in the mid-20s, with winds moving WSW at 7-15 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times. The farther west you are, the better chance of seeing snow showers or even snow squalls. Be careful.

Huron County is under a winter weather advisory starting at 4 p.m. today through 7 a.m. Friday due to the possibility of 3-6 inches of lake effect snow, and tricky travel as a result.

Today’s sunset is at 5:16 p.m.

Skies will gradually clear out late today and overnight, setting us up for another bitter cold night.

Freezing Friday

Metro Detroit will wake to temps in the single digits and low teens Friday morning, with some subzero wind chills. Brrr! Make sure you check on any family members or neighbors you might be concerned about when it comes to staying warm and safe.

Friday will bring us some much needed sunshine, but our high temps will once again struggle to get past the mid-20s with winds moving WNW at 5-13 mph.

Cold weekend, some wet weather

Saturday will be the better of the two weekend days ahead, despite a very chilly beginning. Yes, temps will dip into the single digits and low teens Saturday morning.

Clear skies and sunshine will be with us for the first half of your Saturday. Clouds will increase throughout the afternoon, becoming mostly cloudy with highs in the low-to-mid 30s.

Those clouds will produce a wintry mix after midnight into Sunday morning. Temps will hang in the mid-30s Sunday morning, which means we may see more rain than snow. Most of Sunday actually looks dry after 9 a.m. The day will become partly sunny and will cool from the 30s into the 20s late in the day.

Right now, computer model data keeps Metro Detroit mostly dry most of next week. We’ll keep you posted.
