Not as cold but blustery Wednesday in Detroit

Andrew Humphrey!


Sunshine returns Wednesday morning with temps starting near 20 degrees. 

Afternoon highs will reach 35 degrees, which is higher than yesterday.  It will be blustery with a weak cold front's approach, however, causing wind chills to remain in the teens and low 20s most of the day.  A strong west wind will blow between 10 and 20 mph with higher gusts causing trees and streetlights to sway and branches to fall.

Clouds will increase Wednesday evening and a few light snow showers are possible Wednesday night.  Accumulations will be minor, but some areas will be a little slippery for nighttime drivers.  Low temps will be near 25 degrees.

Flurries will linger into Thursday as it remains breezy.  The cold front is ahead of reinforcing cold air that will keep afternoon temps in the upper 20s.

Friday will be calmer and sunnier with highs in the low 30s.  NAIAS Charity Preview attendees will need to remain warm as they walk the red carpet Friday night with temperatures in the 20s.  Coverage of the big event is on Local 4.

Saturday will be partly sunny and chilly with highs in the upper 30s.  Another front brings snow showers Saturday night and much colder air Sunday and early next week.  Sunday's temps will be in the teens and 20s.
