DETROIT – Sunshine has come out of hiding, but it’s not going to give us any warmer temperatures. In fact, we’ll get even farther below normal by the middle of next week.

Temperatures tonight are headed to the mid-30s as clouds increase into Saturday morning.

Another cold front sweeps through southeast Michigan on Saturday. That will bring a few morning snow showers. But just like Halloween night, no accumulation expected on pavement, just some patches on the grass, car windshields and other elevated surfaces. Behind the front we’ll see a few rain showers on Saturday afternoon. Highs won’t be anywhere close to normal for early November. Low 40s will be the best we can do.

Don’t forget to set your clocks back (remember fall back) an hour before bed on Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Sunday will be dry, but only a degree or two warmer. The morning starts with some sunshine then clouds build in the afternoon. Eventually rain returns late Sunday night into Monday morning.

Next week starts with temperatures remaining below normal. Typical highs this time of year would be in the mid-50s. We may touch 50 on Monday, but mid-40s return for Tuesday and Wednesday highs. Behind a Wednesday cold front, we get even colder. Highs Thursday and Friday will be closer to our normal lows, in the mid-and-upper 30s.
