DETROIT -

Saturday morning will be wet and chilly with light showers and temps in the low 40s. The damp conditions combined with fallen leaves will make the roads more slippery for drivers. Early morning runners in Southwest Detroit's Patton Park for Dia de Los Muertos will need their rain gear and prepare for running through puddles.

Scattered rain remains a possibility Saturday afternoon in the Detroit area and in East Lansing for the big Michigan vs. Michigan State football game. Wolverines and Spartans fans will need their maize and blue or green and white ponchos with extra layering to stay warm and dry while tailgating and watching the game. Highs will be in the upper 40s with a northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

Soggy conditions linger into Saturday evening as temps fall through the middle and low 40s.

It is Daylight Saving Time! We "Fall Back" one our Saturday night/early Sunday morning. Also, now is an excellent time to change the batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

After midnight, it becomes drier but colder by Sunday morning. Skies will be mostly cloudy as the mercury falls to the freezing mark.

Sunday will be colder with morning lows in the low 30s and afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Blue skies continue to reign Monday, but it remains chilly. Morning lows will be in the low 30s for students going back to school and workers returning to the office. Afternoon highs will be near 50 degrees.
