Near 60 MPH wind gusts moving through the region, temperatures crashing through the day...
WIND ADVISORY: Until 1:00 PM Saturday – All of Southeastern/East Central Michigan – Wind gusts of 45-50 MPH are possible as we work through the overnight hours and into Saturday.
A 58 MPH wind gusts has been reported at Detroit-Wayne County Metropolitan Airport this morning as the cold front presses on through the region.
We will keep the chance of some scattered rain showers in the forecast for the first part of our Saturday, before the rain ends, and we do start to see some breaks in the clouds as we work into the afternoon hours, behind the cold front. The winds will continue to be breezy for most of the day as well, but especially through the first half of the day. Winds will be gusting as high as 35-45 MPH.
Temperatures have hit a high early in the day in the mid to upper 50s and will continue to fall throughout the day behind the cold front. Expect temperatures to be into the 30s by the time we get into the afternoon and evening hours, with wind chills colder than that thanks to the breezy winds continuing.
