DETROIT - The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in effect for Detroit and all of Southeast Michigan until 4 a.m. Monday.

Snow remains fairly widespread Sunday evening with temperature back in the low 20s and upper teens.

At the end of supper, many neighborhoods will have snow storm totals between 5 and 8 inches.

Snow becomes more scattered Sunday night with temperatures falling rapidly. Another wave of dangerously cold arctic air arrives. Overnight lows will be below zero with wind chills well below zero.

The scattered flakes will add an extra inch or two through dawn, Monday, and bring the snow storms grand snowfall totals to the 6 to 10 inch range.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be hazardously frigid for everyone in Motown and southern Michigan. Morning lows will be between -15 and -5 degrees.

Wind chills, especially around sunrise, will be as low as -20 or -30. Highs will barely be above zero Monday and Tuesday and just above 10 degrees Wednesday.

All Michiganians (and Midwesterners, for that matter) must protect their loved ones and themselves from frostbite and the unexpected dangers of staying warm. People must never use ovens or stoves for heat, supervise all candles and fireplaces when in use and extinguish them completely before bedtime or leaving home, and take care of pets and keep them indoors.
