DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday evening, Motown.

A flood warning remains in effect along the River Raisin in Monroe until the foreseeable future. The river is, at least, a half-foot above flood stage.

The mercury sinks quickly as skies remain pretty clear and heat flows back to space Saturday evening and Saturday night. It will be dry with no additional snow, and any frozen streets or sidewalks will remain that way. A good chance of melting arrives Sunday afternoon and reemerges Presidents Day and the day after.

Saturday evening will be mostly cloudy and frigid. Temperatures will retreat to the teens.

Saturday night will have clearing skies. This will allow a lot of heat to escape to space. Overnight lows will be near 10 degrees or less. It will be less windy, and wind chills will be near zero degrees.

Mostly sunny Sunday

Sunday will be mostly sunny and seasonably cold in the afternoon. After subfreezing conditions, daytime temperatures will be in the upper 30s.
