Metro Detroit weather: Chilly Saturday with brighter skies

Saturday highs in upper 30s, low 40s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITWelcome to Saturday, Motown.

Saturday afternoon will be mostly sunny and chilly. Wind speeds will be low enough for families to decorate their homes for the holidays. Bundle up, though, because highs will only be in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Today’s sunset is at 5:01 p.m.

Saturday evening will have fair skies. It will become colder with temperatures in the low and middle 30s.

Clouds will slowly return Saturday night. Under increasing high, thin clouds, it will become colder with overnight lows in the 20s.

Wet Sunday

Sunday will become cloudy with more precipitation arriving. Higher temperatures arrive, too, because of a warm front.

So, a brief wintry mix is possible with temperatures near freezing mid-morning. Any frozen precipitation will quickly transition to rain late morning and afternoon, with temperatures rising to the 40s and low 50s.

Then, a cold front arrives Sunday night and Monday. This will cause temperatures to plummet for Monday and early next week.

Colder next week

Monday will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy and colder. Morning temps will be near 20 degrees, and afternoon temps will be near 30 degrees.

Scattered snow showers are possible Tuesday with highs in the low 30s.
