Metro Detroit weather: Rain, wintry mix coming in waves

Friday highs near 40 degrees

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITHappy Friday!

Today will simply be a mess.

Morning snow will turn to rain and we will warm up with a gusty breeze. Skies will stay cloudy all day, but we will likely see some breaks in the action in the late morning and/or early afternoon.

High temperatures will be near 40 degrees. Rain showers and some wintry mix will move in, again, in waves, and it should be mostly rain. Winds moving SW at 10-20 mph, gusting to 30-35 mph at times, will keep it feeling much cooler. This will add to our trouble on the roads, so slow it down.

Today’s sunset is at 6:01 p.m.

Snow overnight into Saturday

A wintry mix Friday night should change back to snow overnight and into early Saturday. We could have another inch or at least a coating of snow on the ground Saturday morning.

Arctic air will pour in after the cold front that switched the mix back to snow. So, it’ll only be in the teens to mid 20s all day, and still a bit breezy. Most of your Saturday will be dry, or at least the afternoon hours will be dry, as our temps struggle under only partly sunny skies.

Warming up next week

We’ll see single-digit lows on Sunday and Monday, and it could be even colder for some around Metro Detroit.

Sunday afternoon highs will be in the low 20s at best after a frigid morning. The day will be dry with Super Bowl Sunday skies going from partly cloudy to mostly cloudy. A quick-moving clipper system may bring some light snow showers late Sunday into early Monday.

Monday is Valentine’s Day, and we will wake to flurries or light snow and single digit temps. Snow will fade but the cold will stay with highs in the 20s. We likely won’t get out of the 20s on Tuesday, either.

But warming weather is coming midweek next week, as we hit temps in the 40s to near 50 degrees with some rain likely Wednesday and possibly Thursday.
