DETROIT -

Showers continue and temperatures fall as the week-long pin wheeling low pressure system slowly shifts to the east Thursday.

The morning will be the mildest time of day with temps near 70 just after midnight and in the middle 60s by dawn. Streets and sidewalks will be wet. Detroiters will need umbrellas and a jacket to get ready for the afternoon.

After lunchtime on Thursday, temperatures will fall in to the 50s as the cold side of the storm replaces the warm side. Showers are still possible after school and for the ride home or to the Blackhawks/Red Wings hockey match-up at Joe Louis Arena.

Thursday night will be chilly.

Temps will be above freezing (so plants should be safe), but fall to near 40 degrees in the city and in the upper and middle 30s in the suburbs.

Friday will be sunnier but remain much cooler than average. Highs will be in the low 60s with blue skies.

Saturday and Sunday will be mostly sunny, too, with higher temps. It will be near 65 on Saturday and closer to 70 Sunday. Memorial Day, Monday will be partly sunny and mild with highs in the low 70s.
