DETROIT – Happy Sunday, Motown!

Skies will be gray, but the thermometer will be higher than it has been the past few days. Those clouds release some raindrops Sunday afternoon, then more than some snowflakes Sunday night and Veterans Day, Monday. This will be the first significant snowfall of the season.

Sunday morning will be cloudy and chilly. Temperatures will not be as low as they have the past few mornings. The mercury starts in the low 30s. Families will still need their coats, hats and scarves to stay warm going to and from services and other early activities.

Sunrise is at 7:17 a.m. ET.

Sunday afternoon will still be cloudy, but it will also be a bit wet with drizzle. Higher temperatures are expected too as a southerly wind boosts temperatures to the middle 40s. It will not be impossible to get around, but use caution on wet roads and sidewalks.

Sunday evening will have scattered rain showers with temperatures near 40°F or in the upper 30s.

Sunset is at 5:17 p.m. ET.

Temperatures get closer to freezing Sunday night after midnight. Rain showers will mix with snow showers.

Things are set for a snowy Veterans Day, Monday. As we plan to honor veterans, factor in a lot of extra time getting to and from commemorations. Streets and walkways will become snowy very quickly.

Temperatures will be steady the entire holiday in the upper 20s to freezing.


Monday afternoon will be snowy as well. At the end of the holiday 1 to 3 inches of fresh snow will be common. Areas with 3 inches or slightly more are likely in neighborhoods south of I-94 and north of I-69 near Lake Huron, including Port Huron.

Another arctic blast hits the region Tuesday and Wednesday. Morning lows will be in the teens and their record lows. Afternoon temperatures will be in the middle and upper 20s under partly sunny skies.
