Metro Detroit weather: Frosty Friday start with warmer weekend on tap

Mostly sunny Friday with highs in 50s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITHappy Friday!

We had our first subfreezing temps of the season in Detroit earlier this week, and this Friday morning we awake to temps below 30, as well. Early risers will see or feel temps in the upper 20s around Metro Detroit this Friday morning, and luckily there is very little wind.

The clear skies, cooler temps and lack of wind may help create some patchy areas of fog, but it won’t likely be an issue for most of us heading out. Just make sure you’re bundled up for this chill.

Today’s sunrise was at 8:12 a.m.

I’s a cold start Friday, but those clear skies causing temps to be cold early on will stick around and help us warm up through the day. We’ll be mostly sunny today with highs around 50 degrees and light winds moving SSW at 5-10 mph.

Skies stay mostly sunny and then mostly clear tonight, which means temps will cool off quickly if you are heading to a high school football game or out and about Friday night -- the thicker coats are not a bad idea.

Today’s sunset is at 6:22 p.m.

Warmer weekend, Daylight Saving Time

We will see mostly clear skies overnight and another crisp morning with Saturday temps starting in the upper 20s to low 30s. You can expect a nice balance of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the low and mid 50s around all of SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario.

If you’re heading to the Michigan football game in Ann Arbor Saturday night, plan for temps to fall back down through the 40s -- but it will be dry and fairly pleasant for an early November game.

Also, don’t forget Daylight Saving Time. It’s time to fall back with the clocks one hour Saturday into Sunday.

Sunday will bring more sunshine and clouds with highs closer to 60 degrees.

Next week preview

We will actually be in the neighborhood of 60 degrees Monday, Tuesday, and perhaps again on Thursday of next week, which is Veteran’s Day.

There is a cool front moving in late Tuesday that will bring a shower chance into the late afternoon or evening, but it’s a weak front and won’t bring much moisture or bitter cold air.

There is a decent rain chance late Wednesday into early Thursday of next week, too.
