Metro Detroit Weather: Calm, dry Saturday night

Not much sunshine Sunday, but things will stay dry


DETROIT – Southeast Michigan gets a break from the snow train that has been running through the area the last several days.

That leaves us with a fairly nice night for dinner and shopping around metro Detroit. Lows will be in a pretty wide range, from the mid-teens in the North Zone, to nearly 30 degrees in parts of the South Zone. Skies will be mostly cloudy with light winds.

Not much sunshine is in store for Sunday. But it looks like it will stay dry. There is a slight chance of a shower, mainly Sunday night. Highs will reach the mid- to upper 30s during the afternoon.

Once temperatures get above freezing Sunday, many will stay there until the middle of next week. On Monday, look for a slight chance at a rain shower. Highs will get to 40 degrees. Even warmer temperatures will be around with more sunshine in store for Tuesday with highs in the low 40s.

Cold air eats away at those gains late in the week. The best chance at precipitation won't happen until Friday. There is still a question whether it will be rain or snow.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day look to be dry with slightly below-normal temperatures.
