Metro Detroit weather: Temperatures warm up

Bitter cold Saturday ahead of warmup


DETROIT – Warmer temperatures are ahead for much of the next seven days.

We've got one more bitterly cold start to get through before temperatures rise over the weekend. On Friday night, skies will be mostly clear. Temperatures will drop to around 10 degrees. Wind chills should remain above zero, but just barely.

Saturday will bring slightly milder temperatures, with highs stopping just shy of the freezing mark. We'll start out sunny and finish with clouds and some light scattered snow showers overnight. No accumulation is expected.

Sunday will be even warmer. Highs will reach the mid- to upper 30s under mainly cloudy skies. Lows by Monday morning will be close to our high temperatures from Friday.

Monday will remain dry and highs will go back to the same spot, in the mid- to upper 30s.

Even though Tuesday will be warmer, it could also end up pretty messy. Look for freezing rain to start early, followed by mainly rain. Eventually, that precipitation will turn to snow by Tuesday night, and we’ll continue to see snow around on Wednesday. It's too early, though, to nail down timing or if we’ll see any accumulation.
