Tracking snow in Metro Detroit Saturday night before cold sets in on Sunday -- what to expect

With the exception of a few light snow showers, we should dry out overnight tonight.

The story then becomes the cold. Temperatures will be in the upper teens as you wake up first thing Sunday, but with gusty winds still around it’s going to feel like lower single digits, even below zero in spots.

Those wind chills only rebound into the teens in the afternoon, so it’s another day to bundle up if you have to be out. A few flurries may fly from time to time Sunday, but we are expecting more dry time.

Relief from the cold builds in during the coming work-week with highs returning to the 40s by Monday, and we could approach 50 by Wednesday and Thursday. The trade off though with the warm-up, is the chance for rain returning.

Long range models differ some on timing, but at this point we’re leaning towards most of Thanksgiving being dry, with the rain returning at night and into Friday. Both Friday and Saturday we keep the chance for a rain/snow mix around. This forecast will certainly need to be fine tuned in the coming days though, so stay tuned!
