High winds across metro Detroit

An arctic cold front is moving through Sunday morning.

The strongest winds came between 3 a.m. and 6 or 7 a.m. with sustained winds at 20 to 35 mph. At times, we could have gusts to 45 mph, which makes driving much more complicated. High profile vehicles can sway and traffic lights may be knocked out. The cold air behind the front will bring temps down into the low 20s by morning and single digit wind chills. An occasional snow shower is possible but won’t be accumulating. Single digit wind chills could last through the early afternoon. By late afternoon mid 20s and breezy to windy conditions keep feels-like conditions in the low teens at best. We will likely see a few lake effect snow showers or flurries Sunday, but nothing too significant.

 MLK Day will be another cold one with light snow showers and wind chills near or below zero in the morning. Temperatures won’t climb out of the teens Monday and some areas could see a dusting of snow to an inch at most. Temperatures get even colder.
