Metro Detroit weather: Cold temperatures continue into foreseeable future

DETROIT – There’s no shortage of sunshine this weekend, but we can’t buy any warmer temperatures.

Sunshine through Sunday

Our weekend will be sun-filled from start to finish. Also, winds won’t be blowing very fast. That’s the best part of our Saturday and Sunday forecast, though.

Highs will be colder Saturday than they were Friday, even with all the clouds. We’ll barely touch 32 degrees Saturday.

Sunday’s highs will be in the mid-30s. There’s a cold front crossing the state Sunday that should dry out completely before it gets to us. But plan on a slight chance of a snowflakes by Monday morning, just to be safe.

Bundle up at the Big House

Weather will be more of an issue for fans than players Saturday as Michigan takes on Michigan State for a noon kickoff in Ann Arbor. Temperatures will stay sub-freezing for pretty much the entire day. We might briefly see them touch 32 by the fourth quarter.

Hunters get snow Up North

If you’re still heading Up North this weekend, northern lower Michigan will remain dry both days, while the Upper Peninsula will get light snow on Sunday. Temperatures will be colder than normal there, as well.

Only two Novembers have been colder

So far, only one day has been above normal in terms of temperature this month. That ranks this month as the third coldest November in Detroit history.

Looking forward, there’s only day during which we might get back above normal temperatures, but even that chance doesn’t look great. Either way, it looks like this year’s Thanksgiving will be colder than a typical Turkey Day.
