Get ready for the cold! Deep freeze settling in metro Detroit

It's a forecast reminiscent of the great (or not so great?) winter of 2013-2014. 

A deep freeze is settling in across Michigan. A few snow showers are lingering, too, but the snow isn't expected to amount to much. 

The National Weather Service has wind chill advisories in effect into Friday, with temperatures of zero to 5 degrees in parts the southern Lower Peninsula expected to make it feel like 15 to 20 degrees below zero. Exposed skin can get frostbite in 30 minutes when it's that cold.

"Warmer" air moves back in Friday afternoon and night, pushing temperatures near 20, but we're also looking to our northwest for our next snowmaker. 

This should bring light snow by Friday night (and possibly as early as Friday evening) into Saturday. We're looking at 1-2" of snow by the time Saturday wraps up. 

Once again, what's more impressive is the cold air this system drags back into SE Michigan. Temperatures will fall off through Saturday and eventually bottom out well below 0°F by Sunday morning.

Another wind chill advisory will likely be posted for Sunday morning and we could set some new record lows. The current record is -10°F, and while the FOX 2 Weather Authority team is forecasting temperatures slightly warmer than that for now, ten below could certainly be a possibility. 

So how warm do we get by Sunday afternoon? 3°F. 

Monday morning temperatures are expected to be well below zero again, too.
