DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday evening, Motown.

Saturday evening becomes chillier, and Saturday night will be colder with increasing clouds. Those gray skies produce rain by Sunday afternoon. On Sunday, temperatures keep climbing even after the sun sets. Then, it gets colder for the beginning and middle of next week.

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

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

Sunday becomes 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 goes away and paves the way for rain Sunday afternoon and evening. Temperatures rise through the 30s and 40s to near 50 degrees when it’s dark.

Then, a cold front arrives Sunday night and Monday. This will cause temperatures to plummet for Monday and early 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 40degrees.

Scattered snow showers are possible late Tuesday, with highs near 30 degrees.

Wednesday morning has a chance of snow. The afternoon will be chilly with highs in the middle to upper 30s.
