Metro Detroit weather: More chances for snow this weekend

Temperatures rise early next week

DETROIT – Sunshine gave us a break from the snow Thursday, but it will be back Friday.

On Thursday night, clouds will gradually increase after midnight. Temperatures will drop to the low and mid-teens early, and generally sit there until daybreak. Winds will remain light.

Snow will start early in our North Zone, but the amounts aren't that impressive. Total accumulation through the day will be less than an inch. Snow will spread south from midday through the afternoon. This is when the winds will start cranking up, so snow squalls will drop visibilities to near zero at times during the drive home. Look for slightly milder highs in the mid-20s.

Expect another dusting Saturday, most likely around midday, but with much lighter winds. Highs will rise to the low 30s.

On Sunday night and Monday, we’ll watch a disturbance move toward us from the southwest. Right now, there’s a slight chance that it will make it to us. Even if it does, we won’t see much moisture from it.

From Sunday onward, we’ll get a string of days -- seven, to be exact -- with highs above freezing. We might get to 40 degrees by the start of next week.
