DETROIT (AP) -- An arctic blast is loosening its grip on Michigan as hundreds of schools remain closed due to the cold and travel is hazardous around the state.

On Wednesday morning, temperatures in Detroit are around zero degrees. Warming is expected throughout the day, topping out in the high teens. It was 15 below zero in Three Rivers, 13 below in Coldwater, 12 below in Ann Arbor and 10 below in Adrian

Wind chill warnings are in effect across much of the southern Lower Peninsula. Some more snow was possible in places.

On Tuesday, with record-low temperatures recorded in some parts of the state, wind chills made it feel as though it were 30 to 40 degrees below. Michigan authorities have blamed seven deaths on last weekend's snowstorm and the deep freeze.
