If you’re planning on being out and about this weekend, make sure you bundle up and get ready for some snow, thanks to the infamous polar vortex.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook Friday morning for portions of southeast Michigan, including Wayne County.

Travelers are advised to use caution Friday afternoon, as lake effect will bring some periods of heavy snow to the area this evening. Motorists should use caution as white-out conditions are possible while the bands of snow rapidly move through the area.

Wind chills are also expected to fall between 10 and 15 below zero between Friday evening and Saturday morning, according to the weather service.

Temps will stay cold throughout the remainder of the weekend, and forecasts point to a rebound in temperatures starting Monday.
