We are monitoring storms moving out of northern Indiana which may become strong to severe between 10am and 3pm today. The main threats will be wind gusts to 60 mph and hail to 1 inch. The highest chance for severe weather will be south of a line from Jackson to Sandusky.
Summer-like temperatures are in the forecast with little precipitation expected, according to forecasters.
Forecasters say models show the extended timeframe with 80s starting next Tuesday and continuing for another seven to ten days beyond next Tuesday.
There will likely be some weather system that forms and keeps temps cooler than 80 some day in that 10 day period, but the main forecast says mid-70s to mid-80s are going to be common next week and possibly the following week.
The calendar says spring but winter hasn’t released its grip on us just yet.
A winter weather advisory has been issued for Wayne County through Wednesday morning.
Total snow and sleet accumulations of up to one inch are expected, and ice accumulations around one tenth of an inch, according to forecasters.
A burst of snow and sleet moves into the area west of US-23 by 8 p.m. and then spreads southwest to northeast across metro Detroit and the northern suburbs. Snow and sleet change over to freezing rain quickly during the evening which then continues after midnight into Wednesday morning.
