Spectators heading to the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Center this week would do well to bundle up as cold arctic air returns for a week-long visit.
According to the National Weather Service, temperatures will drop into the mid-teens by Monday afternoon, which, by the coming weekend will seem toasty warm.
“We’ll see falling temperatures today dropping from the 20s into the teens,” said meteorologist Phil Kurimski, working out of the White Lake Township station.
“The low Monday night will be about zero.”
By Tuesday the expected high will only be about 10 degrees with a nighttime low of zero to -5 degrees.
“And it looks like it’s going to stay in those temperature ranges until the weekend when we see temperatures start to rise again into the 20s,” Kurimski said.
