DETROITGood Wednesday afternoon!

We’ll see mostly cloudy skies most of the day today as our mild morning turns into mild temps this afternoon. We aim for mid and upper 30s today. One of our computer models predicts highs in the low 40s, but too many clouds and a stiff breeze should keep us in the mid-to-upper 30s by lunchtime and beyond.

A few bits and pieces of a broken storm will carry light snow and rain chances into Metro Detroit by midday Wednesday, and into the afternoon. The air over SE lower Michigan and Southern Ontario is a little dry, and the snow showers and/or wintry mix will struggle to hit the ground -- so don’t expect much in the way of showers or lasting showers today.

Today’s sunset is at 5:58 p.m.

Light snow possible overnight

Thursday looks to be a pretty mild day, although the snow showers from late Wednesday will try to hang on into Thursday morning. Our computer models show that a quick dusting of snow is possible Thursday morning, making for a bit of a slippery start tomorrow. Again, that’s only if we get a little of the white stuff early on.

Most of the day Thursday will be mostly cloudy and dry, with temps in the upper 20s early, and finishing in the low-to-mid 30s.

Friday is another wild one, as highs head into the mid and upper 30s as some wet weather tries to move back into Metro Detroit. Look for scattered snow showers and possibly some wintry mix in spots on Friday, setting us up for a dry weekend.

Getting colder through the weekend

Saturday will be on the mild side when it comes to February standards here in Michigan. We’ll see temps in the 20s most of the day, near 30 degrees for a high, but numbers will be falling into the end of our weekend.

The skies will be partly sunny Saturday with a little more sun Sunday. But, Sunday will be much colder with single-digit lows and highs in the upper teens to low 20s.
