Metro Detroit weather: Slippery weather returns Friday morning

Friday highs near 40 degrees

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITWelcome to Friday, Motown.

Colder air is back and slippery weather is not far behind.

Rain and snow showers arrive this morning. Cold and chilly weather sticks around through, at least, the first half of the weekend. Tomorrow looks dry, and Sunday looks icy, snowy and wet.

Today’s sunrise was at 7:45 a.m.

Friday morning will be cold and cloudy. Temperatures are starting in the 20s to near 30 degrees. Clouds are sinking lower with snow and rain showers developing, then moving from West to East.

The first snowflakes and some raindrops will begin to fall just after the beginning of morning rush-hour, and will continue to fall through mid-day.

Friday afternoon will be slippery with scattered rain and snow showers. It will be chilly with highs in the upper 30s to near 40°F.

Today’s sunset is at 5:01 p.m.

Fewer snowflakes and raindrops will fall Friday evening. It does get colder with temperatures in the low 30s.

Friday night will be partly to mostly cloudy and colder. Overnight lows will be in the 20s.

Sunny, then wet

Saturday will be partly sunny and chilly. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 30s to near 40°F.

Sunday will be cloudy across Metro Detroit with a new round of precipitation moving in to the region.

There is a chance of precipitation arriving early enough where snow and freezing rain are possibilities in the morning. By lunchtime and the afternoon, temperatures will be way above freezing -- in the 40s -- and just chilly rain is possible.

Even cooler next week

Once the wet and slippery weather is gone, Monday and Tuesday will become much colder. Nighttime and early morning lows will be in the 20s, and daytime temperatures will only be in the middle 30s each day.

There’s a chance of snow showers and a winter mix on Tuesday and Wednesday.
