Metro Detroit weather: Rain heading into Halloween

Halloween expected to be wet

DETROIT – Good Wednesday afternoon! We are in the beginning stages still of a pretty significant two day rain event.

Yes, we will get some brief lulls in the action which we hope will allow Metro Detroit temperatures to land near 50°F, but keep the umbrella handy as more waves of rain keep coming.

Showers will be around for the evening drive and that will be a nuisance, slowing your commute. Watch out for those other drivers and potential hydroplaning.

Halloween forecast

We’re still in the thick of the rain on Halloween, Thursday but the most recent data we’re tracking gives some hope to somewhat dry conditions tomorrow morning. This means your school may be able to get outside for those Halloween Parade -- the cutest darn thing in the world.

Steady afternoon and evening rain showers tomorrow will make for tough Trick-Or-Treating with not only rain and mid to upper 40s, but the winds will start cranking tomorrow afternoon and/or evening NE 10-20 mph shifting to the WSW 20-25 gusting to 40 mph.

Hold onto your masks and brooms! The tail end of this event does bring the chance for some wet, blowing snow after 9pm Thursday.

Friday forecast

Cold breezes will howl overnight into Friday morning and any the rain and snow will be gone by sunrise Friday.

Get ready for a cold end to your work and school week starting with morning lows in the mid 30s only warm into the mid to maybe upper 40s. It will be sunny Friday, but breezy and feeling much cooler all day.

Weekend outlook

We will see more flakes flying Saturday afternoon after a cold and clear start near or below freezing. The winds will drag moisture from Lake Michigan and bring a few afternoon snow showers Saturday with highs only in the lower or mid 40s.

It will be dry, but chilly on Sunday with partly sunny skies after sub-freezing lows warming into those low to mid 40s once again.
