Winter's delivers its first gut punch of the season here in the Great Lakes, and the snow from Saturday wasn't even the worst of it. 

We have *Wind Chill Advisories* in place for multiple Mid-Michigan counties. Get the details on your area here. Just remember is your location is not under an advisory, this doesn't mean you won't be experiencing brutally cold wind chills.

We have *Winter Weather Advisories* in place for Huron and Sanilac counties until Monday at 7:00 am. Get the details on your area here.

We explain below!

SLIDESHOW: Hour-by-hour wind chills


The northeasterly winds will continue to stir up a few snow showers off of Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron at times into the overnight hours. Areas within the winter weather advisory will look to pick up around 1"- 4" + depending on where lake effect bands set up. Some locally higher amounts will definitely be a possibility.

Lows Sunday night will fall below zero as skies begin to clear. Winds will begin to ease, but wind chills remain dangerously cold all the way into Monday morning. Values will feel more like -10 to -20 will some local areas even colder.

If you are heading out at any time this weekend, make sure to cover up completely! Temperatures and wind chills this cold will look to make frostbite more likely on any exposed skin if you don't dress appropriately.  

While the majority of Mid-Michigan does looks to have good sky conditions to see the lunar eclipse tonight, please be sure to do so in a smart,safe way; from indoors would be best. Probably not the best view but with temperatures and wind chills this cold, I wouldn't advise staying outdoors for long periods of time. 


A few lingering lake effect snow showers will continue into Thumb region throughout the morning. The rest of Mid-Michigan will break into a good amount of sunshine for MLK day! 

While most schools have the day off tomorrow, some schools are still scheduled for classes tomorrow. Check to see if you have a delay or closing for your school or businesses here.

Temperatures will still be very cold but will be moving in the positive direction. Highs look to reach back into the low teens. More good news is that winds will be subsiding and winds chills won't be as brutal. Winds will be coming out of northwest, shifting to the south southeast only around 5-10 mph. It will still feel like the single digits but that's better than having reading below zero.

We're watching the development of our next potential winter storm Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. We will be working out the snowfall amounts over the next 24 hours. Stay tuned!
