DETROIT – It’s cold and cloudy outside your door this Friday afternoon as most of Metro Detroit is stuck with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s for the rest of your shopping or relaxing.

The clouds will stick around, leaving us only with an occasional glimpse of blue sky or sun and light winds which means wind chills are not an issue. The roads will stay dry as your out killing those Black Friday deals.

It stays cool and cloudy all evening with temps mainly in the 30s if you’re heading out tonight.


We will awake to temps in the upper 20s Saturday morning under cloudy skies and the winds will be picking up a little tomorrow, too. We also expect some wild weather at times tomorrow and the winds will play a big part in it all.

First, anyone heading to Ann Arbor for Ohio State vs. Michigan will need layers as wind chills will be in the low to mid 20s at best. The east winds tomorrow 7-17 mph will gust 20-25 mph at times and although that creates a wind chill nuisance, the winds will be blowing dry air into an approaching weather maker. So, the first round of rain/snow around lunchtime may be very little thanks to those drying winds.

Today’s model data shows some wintry mix moving into Metro Detroit though the afternoon. Make sure you’ve got a layer to protect against the wet stuff. We could see snow, sleet, and rain eventually transitioning to rain showers as highs hit the upper 30s to low 40s tomorrow feeling much cooler.

More late afternoon showers could be on the heavier side, but the heaviest rains will come late, late Saturday into early Sunday.


We should see rain, not snow, early Sunday in all areas except our North Zone where areas north of I-69 could see snow stack up to an inch or two.

Rain showers fade mid morning and temps try to warm into the upper 40s. We expect a few more showers coming and going Sunday, and then some cooler air pours in as we head into Monday.

Next week

Could we see a few flakes? A few. But most of Monday is just cool and cloudy with 30s to near 40 degrees. And, that looks to be the trend for most of next week: Lows near 30°F, and highs near 40°F with breezes that cut into those temps.

Still, it looks mostly dry most of next week with no signs of any storms heading our way. We’ll certainly let you know if and when that changes. But enjoy the weekend and your Holidays everyone!
