Metro Detroit weather: Breezy afternoon keeping things cold

Thursday wind chills in teens, low 20s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Thursday afternoon!

The afternoon will be mostly cloudy and a bit breezy, with west winds moving at 7-15 mph, and gusting to 22 mph. That will keep wind chills in the lower 20s or even in the teens.

Today’s sunset is at 6 p.m.

Repeat on Friday

We’ll have a near repeat performance on Friday, with mixed up temps and moisture -- meaning anything goes.

We will have morning lows in the mid-20s, and we will have some snow showers around before 8 a.m., which may cause some slick streets and difficulty driving.

After 8 a.m., there is a good chance for some rain, or even freezing rain, to mix in before our temps rise above freezing. It will warm up Friday into the upper 30s to low 40s, so it won’t stay below freezing with ice for long, if we get any at all.

Cold weekend with some snow

Saturday will be a chilly one after a cold front swings through Metro Detroit Friday.

We’ll see a few snowflakes flying Saturday morning, and we may see an inch on the ground in a few spots west and north of Detroit. It will be a partly sunny Saturday afternoon with temps in the upper teens, warming only into the low 20s.

Sunday will be very cold in the morning, as arctic air seeps in and settles for a few days. We’ll see single-digit to subzero lows Sunday morning, and then partly sunny and highs near 20 degrees.

Next week preview

A few flurries are possible on Valentine’s Day on Monday. It will be chilly again in the single digits early on, and will warm into the low 20s.

We’ll see sunshine and low 30s on Tuesday.

Wednesday may be well into the 40s with some rain possible. One of our computer models puts highs near 50 degrees by the middle of next week in Metro Detroit. We’ll see!
