Metro Detroit weather: Temperatures drop below normal

Mix of rain, snow Wednesday

DETROIT – We spent so much of November above average (and even setting a record), but now we're on the other side of that coin. Temperatures will stay below normal until Thanksgiving.

Monday night, clear skies and cold conditions will take us into the 20s area wide, with a few upper teens by daybreak.

Tuesday will be bright and continued cold. Highs will peak in the upper 30s. Winds will be light, so wind chills won’t be an issue.

Our dry streak comes to an end on Wednesday. A mix of rain and snow will develop in the afternoon, with temperatures in the mid-30s. But as a warm front approaches, temperatures will warm up somewhat, changing any precipitation to all rain after midnight.

Thanksgiving Thursday will be dry, with any overnight rain drying out prior to sunrise. We’ll see plenty of clouds during America’s Thanksgiving Parade, but temperatures will be above freezing, in the mid-30s. We’ll rise to the mid-40s by afternoon with a few peeks of sunshine late.

Friday, a few showers mixed with snowflakes will be around for shoppers, mainly in the afternoon.

Saturday and Sunday will be dry and seasonably cool. In fact, both days should be above freezing, even overnight.
