Metro Detroit weather: Temps dropping as cold front moves through

Wednesday temps will reach 20s this afternoon, wind chills even lower

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday afternoon!

A cold front is moving through Metro Detroit this afternoon, so our mild morning temps will become much cooler later in the day. In fact, we will likely be in the upper 20s by the mid-to-late afternoon as those winds keep whipping.

Winds will move WSW at 10-25 mph and gust to 30-35 mph at times -- bringing wind chills down into the single digits.

Skies will stay mostly cloudy most of the day, but there isn’t much moisture to work with as that cold front blows through. This morning’s wintry mix or spotty drizzle is about all the precipitation we’ll see around Metro Detroit today.

Today’s sunset is at 5:31 p.m.

This cold front will usher in another batch of bitter cold, arctic air for the end of the week and the weekend.

Colder days ahead

We will dip down into the single digits and low teens early Thursday under partly cloudy skies. Highs tomorrow are only in the lower 20s and, luckily, the winds will relent and move NNW at 5-13 mph.

Friday will start even colder, with all of our area in the single digits and a few rural suburbs closer to zero. Friday will bring a ton of sun, but more bitter cold -- highs will only be in the lower 20s.

Light weekend snow possible

We have a shot at a few flakes flying late, late Saturday and Sunday, but we won’t have a lot to show for it. We will see a dusting to maybe an inch of snow in spots both weekend days.

Temps will be in the teens to mid 20s on both Saturday and Sunday, too.

We do have a better chance at some accumulating snow late Monday into Tuesday next week. Stay tuned!
