Temps falling Sunday evening, Arctic chill in the works

Published On: Feb 23 2014 03:50:33 PM EST

Sunday morning will be partly cloudy and cold in Detroit and southeast Michigan. Hords of men's college basketball fans will be gearing up for the big Michigan-Michigan State game in Ann Arbor at noon. Anyone driving to Crisler Arena or their favorite watch-venue will have dry roads to drive on most of the time. There are areas of poor drainage with slippery spots or puddles. Also, the region's recent thaw has revealed massive, damaging potholes that can flatten tires and dent rims.

Sunday afternoon will be mostly sunny and chilly with highs near 30 degrees by the end of the Spartans-Wolverines game. The wind will blow from the west at 10 to 15 mph.

Sunday night will be colder with lows in the middle and low teens. Skies will be mostly clear.

Monday will be bright, again, but cold with highs in the low 20s. Monday night and Tuesday will have a cold front whiz overhead with snow showers and frigid air behind it. This is the next polar vortex that will dominate the remainder of the week. Highs will be between 10 and 15 degrees and morning/nighttime lows will be in the single digits or below zero with wind chills well below zero Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
