Metro Detroit weather: Mostly cloudy, chilly Saturday evening

Temps near 40 degrees

Welcome to Saturday evening, Motown!

Saturday evening remains mostly cloudy but dry. Grab your jackets and hats before going to and from Kwanzaa and Hanukkah celebrations and ceremonies and events like The Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert at 8:00 p.m. ET at Little Caesars Arena. Temps will be near 40 degrees.

Saturday night becomes chillier with clouds becoming lower and thicker. Overnight lows will be in the middle and upper 30s.

Rain develops and arrives, Sunday morning and for the rest of the day. Temps rise to the middle and upper 50s in the afternoon. Umbrellas and rain gear will be needed for football fans tailgating and going to the 1:00 p.m. ET Detroit Lions game against the Green Bay Packers at Ford Field.

The last Monday of 2019 will have cloudy skies with colder conditions after a cold front passes. Temps will be in the 20s in the morning and the upper 30s in the afternoon. A few leftover rain and snow showers are possible in the morning.

New Year’s Eve, Tuesday, will be mostly cloudy to partly sunny. A westerly wind will grab some lake effect snow and give Southeast Michigan a chance of scattered snow during the day. Afternoon temps will be in the upper 30s. By nightfall and at midnight, skies will be mostly cloudy, and it will be freezing (in the low 30s) at midnight when we welcome the new year.

Happy New Year, Wednesday! The first day of 2020 will be partly sunny and chilly. Highs near 40 degrees.
