Metro Detroit weather: Getting colder Saturday night into new year

Highs will be near 40 degrees Sunday

DETROIT – Happy New Year's Eve, Saturday! Detroit rounds out the new year and brings in the new with afternoon temps higher than average each day with just a few flakes before the clock strikes midnight.

As thousands were expected to gather around Campus Martius for The D Drop, it gets colder Saturday night. Temps will fall to the 20s, and wind chills will be in the teens in Motown and Southeast Michigan when 2017 begins. Adding an extra layer, including long-johns is a great idea for folks celebrating outdoors or going to and from First Night ceremonies.

The Detroit Lions play for playoff position and clinching the NFC North Sunday. During the day, skies will be mostly cloudy for tailgaters and families going to and from services on New Year's Day. Highs will be near 40 degrees, again, with even higher temps on the way the next day.

Monday will have a warm front pass with a chance of rain in the afternoon. Although skies will be overcast, highs will be in the low and mid 40s. Rain is possible Tuesday, too, with temps in the low 50s!

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday become colder and seasonable, again. Highs will be in the 30s, and lows will be in the 20s.
