    Cold, Snow, Ice Return to Detroit This Week

    Another wintry week is in store for Detroit featuring bitter cold, snow accumulation and some icy conditions.

    Following the weekend's snowstorm, another round of snow brought light accumulation Tuesday morning.


    While temperatures will be right above freezing on Tuesday, wind will make it feel even colder. A wind from the west/southwest will be sustained at around 17 mph but gusts up to 33 mph are possible throughout the day.

    Winds will subside overnight but into the evening hours gusts up to 20 mph could occur.


    At midweek, times of clouds and sun on Wednesday will bring a short-lived relief to the wintry weather for the city. However, it will still be cold in the city, as the day's high temperature will peak at only 26.

    It will not be as cold on Thursday but a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain during the afternoon hours will make for icy conditions around the city. Into the evening hours this mix could cause some traffic delays as roads may freeze.

    Those out on the roads Thursday afternoon and evening should use caution as icy, slippery conditions are possible.

    Another period of rain will come Friday morning but the air will be warmer on Friday, so the concern for icing will be reduced.

    Headed into the weekend, temperatures will dip back into the 20s on Saturday, making for a cold day in the city.

    Another chance of snow is in the forecast for Sunday.
