DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for Jan. 10, 2022, afternoon and evening.
Wind chills overnight could be as low as -10 degrees

Tracking chances for snow later this week
- Snow is looking likely later Wednesday, with the best chances being in the North Zone.

Weekend weather (We could see some snow)
