Cloudy, damp Saturday night

Temps steady, near 40 degrees


DETROIT – All freezing rain advisories for metro Detroit Saturday morning have expired as the warmer temperatures melt ice around southeastern Michigan.

Warm air advection, where warm air pushes into a region, will continue Saturday night and prevent any wet areas from freezing. It will remain soggy with rain possible overnight under cloudy skies and temperatures that remain near 40 or in the low 40s.

Sunday will be cloudy and milder. Highs will be near 50 degrees. Rain remains a constant feature for anyone traveling to the Wright Museum, the Detroit Zoo, the DIA or the Fox Theatre. The Detroit Lions are away in Foxboro, Massachusetts, taking on the New England Patriots. There, it will be mild and brighter with partly sunny skies and highs in the low 50s. 

Watch: Saturday football forecast

Detroit will see low 50s Monday afternoon but will continue to get drenched. It will be a rainy day for students to enjoy indoor recess.

And just when all the snow has melted from three straight days of above-freezing readings, colder air returns Monday night with a possibility of rain and snow showers Monday night and snow showers Tuesday. Tuesday's daytime temps will be near 35 degrees. Sunshine returns Wednesday with highs in the middle 30s; a cold day for raking or cleaning the gutters.
