DETROIT – There will be no additional snow today, but there is a chance of rain. I guarantee it. This means February 2021 will be the 11th snowiest Detroit February on record (climate reports date back to the late 19th century).

Temps rise very far above freezing later today despite cloudier skies and the chance of rain. Today will not be a wash-out though. Drier but colder weather returns tomorrow and Tuesday. Milder weather comes back Wednesday through Friday.

Temps rise quickly above freezing just before precipitation falls. Skies become overcast although scattered light rain is possible through lunchtime.
