Saturday morning will have rain showers with chilly conditions. Temperatures will be near 50 degrees. Roads and sidewalks will be damp for early-risers and families headed to the cider mill early.

Saturday afternoon will be cool but drier with some sunshine before the end of the day. Michigan fans going to Ann Arbor the Wolverine's football game against Miami Of Ohio will need their Michigan sweatshirts, jackets hats and knit gloves to remain warm. High temperatures will be near 60 degrees, but a stiff wind will blow from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph. It will feel like it is in the low 50s much of the afternoon.

The same attire will be needed for Detroit Tigers' fans for the game against Cleveland Saturday evening at Comerica Park. Block M's can be swapped for Old English D's. Temperatures will be in the 50s by the 7:08pm ET first pitch and in the 40s by the end of the game (and Tigers' victory).

Saturday night will be partly cloudy and colder. Temperatures will fall to the 40s in downtown Detroit but in the 30s in many northern and western suburbs. The record low Sunday morning is 37 degrees set back in 1975.

Sunday will get a bit milder after a cold start. Skies will be mostly sunny, and afternoon temps will be near 65 degrees. A few showers return Monday with highs in the middle 60s. More sunshine returns the middle of next week with highs in the middle then upper 60s.
