Metro Detroit weather: Halloween sunshine with evening chill, showers for some

Sunday highs in upper 50s with chance of isolated evening showers

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITHappy Halloween and good Sunday afternoon, Motown.

This afternoon will have some sun, but clouds can never resist Detroit’s Halloween festivities.

Afternoon and evening clouds will produce widely scattered raindrops for outdoor events and trick-or-treating. Colder air will arrive tonight and stay put tomorrow and through the rest of our work week.

Sunday afternoon will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Tumbling clouds will lead to a few lake-enhanced light rain showers and sprinkles that will be widely scattered. It will not be a washout for trick-or-treaters. Dressing them with a layer or two under the costumes would be a good idea.

Sunday afternoon highs will be in the upper 50s, and late afternoon and evening temperatures will be in the low 50s.

Today’s sunset is at 6:28 p.m.

Sunday evening will be mostly cloudy and chilly. Temperatures will be near 50°F or lower.

Any scattered raindrops will fade away and leave Sunday night. It will become much chillier with overnight lows in the upper 30s and in the 40s. Remember to bring your pets indoors before going to bed.
