It’s a one-two finish for Michigan in the race to be the snowiest “non-mountainous” city across the U.S. this past winter.
Sirens were originally installed throughout the city more than 35 years ago, but vandalism, copper line theft and closure or demolition of buildings housing the sirens left fewer than 20 in service.
Just how cold is it in metro Detroit?
“Detroit right now sits in fifth place for the coldest month of all time…”
Many parts of the U.S. have already broken records for snowfall and below zero temperatures while other parts have seen unseasonably warm temperatures.
We’ll be stuck with these frigid temps most of the week.
February 2015 could be one for the record books in terms of cold weather.
All public schools in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Monroe and St Clair counties are closed Friday due to extreme cold.
For those hoping for a break in the frigid temperatures in metro Detroit…sorry.
Forecasters say the coldest wind chills, around 30 below zero, will occur between 8 a.m. and noon Thursday.
