(WXYZ) — The coldest air Metro Detroit has had in two years moves in early next week, and we won't warm up any time soon.

Colder air moving in Saturday and Sunday

Plan for sub-zero wind chills just about every morning next week. Highs will be in the upper teens almost every day, but a couple days may climb into the low 20s.

The cold air won't retreat to the north until 9 or 10 days from now. The Climate Prediction Center outlook for the next 8 to 14 days shows a 70% chance of below-average temperatures in Michigan through February 18th.

It's going to be a very cold week, but thankfully not as cold as it was at the end of January 2019; when temperatures dropped to -14° in metro Detroit.
