Wild weather Wednesday

As flood concerns persist, Wednesday's high temperature will break Detroit's 1969 record of 53 degrees in the morning or midday.  Temps will be in the upper 50s and low 60s.  Heavy downpours and lightning are likely during the morning commute.  Flooded basements and hydroplaning vehicles are possible.

As a cold front approaches and passes, temperatures will be in free fall late Wednesday afternoon.  The mercury will plummet over 20 degrees from the middle and upper 50s to the middle and low 30s after sunset.  Scattered rain will mix with and turn to scattered snow by Wednesday night.  Overnight lows will be near 20 and blustery northwest winds 10 to 20 mph will send wind chills in the single digits.

Thursday and the rest of the week will feel like January or even colder.  Thursday will be mostly cloudy, cold and bluster with scattered light snow and highs near 25.

Friday will be more frigid with morning lows near 10, afternoon highs in the upper teens and wind chills near zero or lower.

Saturday and Super Bowl Sunday will remain cold.  Perfect for staying indoors.  Nighttime lows will be in the teens and afternoon highs will be in the middle and upper 20s.

Anyone lucky enough to make it to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII will experience partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the middle 60s and lows in the middle 40s outside the Superdome.
