Metro Detroit weather: Freaky, then flakey forecast
DETROIT – We are starting our Finally Friday with lots of clouds and some lake effect rain showers near Lake Huron. Highs will struggle mightily today, as temps hold nearly steady in the low to mid 40s (5 to 7 degrees Celsius). Temperatures will fall into the mid 40s (7 degrees Celsius) during the early evening, so a couple of layers under the costume works well. We start the day with rain showers and temps in the mid 40s (7 to 8 degrees Celsius). Highs will warm into the mid 50s (12 degrees Celsius) on Tuesday, and then potentially be at or a little above 60 degrees (16 degrees Celsius) through the weekend!
Two October snowfall records broken as Marquette records 8 inches of snow Sunday
Snow in October is not entirely surprising in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula -- but this much snow is record breaking. The National Weather Service reported two broken snowfall records at their Marquette office on Sunday. “We recorded 8.3 inches yesterday, which breaks the old record of 3.1 inches set in 1976! This recent snowfall also established a new monthly snowfall record for the month of October at our office. Weather records for the National Weather Service office located in Negaunee Township date back to 1961.”We haven’t seen any snow in the Metro Detroit region yet.

Metro Detroit weather: Dry, mild Friday with frost possible tonight
The one exception will be in the Thumb, where Lake Huron moisture will give you more cloud cover and some scattered showers. The third ingredient is cloud cover, and that’s the question mark. Enough high resolution models bring in some of this cloud cover – which acts as a blanket and holds some heat in - that I think many of us won’t see frost. Our Urban Heat Island has the lowest risk, as temps there will only drop into the upper 30s (4 degrees Celsius). Next weekMonday looks great, with mostly sunny skies and highs near 60 degrees (15 to 16 degrees Celsius).
