Metro Detroit weather: Winter weather makes way for nicer weekend

Temperatures in 60s return for weekend

DETROIT – As quickly as winter rolled in, it will be rolling out.

Colder night

Temperatures will be colder overnight than the numbers we woke up to Thursday morning. Expect low 20s in the Metro Zone, with a lot of teens elsewhere. To see the lows for your neighborhood, check the 4ZONE page.

Winds will continue to diminish Thursday night. so it won’t feel as cold Friday morning, despite lower numbers on the thermometer.

Resuming spring

After another below-normal finish Friday, the 60s are back for the weekend. We should touch that mark in the afternoon Saturday and rise to the mid-60s on Easter Sunday.

The entire three-day stretch will be dry. Expect more sun Friday than the weekend, but skies should still be plenty bright Saturday and Sunday. Sunrise services on Sunday will still be cool, with morning lows in the 40s.

Warmer and wetter

The mercury continues to climb next week, as highs hit the 70s on Monday and Tuesday.

Numbers drop a bit Wednesday and Thursday of next week, but still finish well above normal in the mid- and upper 60s.

Rain chances look good for Monday through Wednesday, with Tuesday being the most likely day to get wet.

High-ranking March

We beat the odds by a considerable amount last month. The average monthly temperature was more than 5 degrees above normal. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but it cemented 2021 as the eighth-warmest March on record in Detroit.

Despite our cold start to April, we’ve got a lot more above-normal days ahead.
