DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday, Motown!

We’ll have some sun and clouds for the rest of today with higher temperatures. We can shed our winter coats after a cold start. It becomes chilly again tonight. It will be seasonably mild tomorrow. After milder conditions Monday, wintry conditions return Tuesday and Wednesday. Yes, snowflakes return. Yikes!

Saturday afternoon will be partly sunny and delightful. A jacket or coat were needed this morning to stay warm, but we can get away with a sweatshirt and jeans in the afternoon. With enough sunshine, temperatures reach the middle and upper 50s. The average high is 60 degrees.

Saturday evening will be partly cloudy and chilly outside Little Caesars Arena. The Detroit Red Wings are hosting Chicago for a hockey game that starts when the puck drops at 7 p.m. Temperatures will be in the low 50s by then. The mercury drops back to the 40s before midnight.
