Metro Detroit weather: Bitter cold, but with some sunshine

Friday with highs in upper teens

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Friday afternoon!

The cold air is anchored in all day. Remember to layer up and cover exposed skin, or face the threat of frostbite within 30 minutes or less.

Afternoon high temperatures will settle into the upper teens to low 20s, with a stinging breeze moving WNW at 7-13 mph.

Most of Metro Detroit will remain mostly dry through the rest of the day. Parts of our South Zone may see some afternoon snow showers with a weak disturbance passing to our south.

Skies will become mixed with sun and clouds, so keep the sunglasses handy for your Friday and Saturday.

Today’s sunset is at 5:18 p.m.

Wet weather late Saturday

It will be a bone chilling start to your Saturday, with lows in the single digits or low teens before sunrise.

Saturday will become very nice and very normal, with highs hitting the low-to-mid 30s, which matches our climatological average here in SE lower Michigan and Southern Ontario. Skies will start sunny on Saturday, with increasing high clouds into the mid and late afternoon.

We will see a wintry mix moving in late Saturday into early Sunday with the chance for snow, sleet and some freezing rain or drizzle. Ice is a concern late Saturday and early Sunday -- if you have the need to be out on the roads during that stretch, be mindful.

Sunday morning’s wintry mix should be moving out by 8 a.m. which will leave us to enjoy a fairly mild end of the weekend with mid-to-upper 30s and partly to mostly sunny skies into the afternoon.

Next week preview

Another cold front will move through late in the day Sunday, bringing temps back into the teens and 20s for both Monday and Tuesday of next week. Thankfully, there won’t be much wet weather -- most of next week still looks pretty dry on our computer model data. We’ll certainly keep you posted with any changes.
