Metro Detroit weather: More melting with filtered sunshine

Sunday highs in upper 30s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITWelcome to Sunday, Motown.

Clouds arrive from the north today, along with a few snowflakes. Temperatures continue to rise above freezing, though.

Behind the front bringing clouds and flurries is more frigid air for tonight and Monday. Then, temperatures rebound nicely for the first couple days of March.

Sunday afternoon will be cloudier and chilly. Temperatures rise to the middle and upper 30s. Any streets with snow or ice nearby become a bit wetter with more melting. Scattered flurries are possible, too, mainly in the Thumb.

Today’s sunset is at 6:20 p.m.

Sunday evening will be cloudy and chilly. The mercury will fall to the upper 20s and low 30s by dinner time.

The weak trough of low pressure bringing the clouds may produce a few widely scattered flurries Sunday night. It certainly gets colder with overnight lows in the low teens.

Colder Monday

Monday will become partly sunny after early morning clouds and widely scattered snowflakes. It will be colder again. Daytime temperatures will be near 30 degrees on Monday, February’s final day.

Warmer temps ahead

Tuesday will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy with rebounding temperatures. There is a good chance of melting and thawing with highs in the low 40s. Be extremely careful when it comes to lake ice. The possibility of falling through the ice or being stranded on an ice flow increases as the week progresses.

Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with highs near 40 degrees.

Snow showers are possible Thursday, and it will be chillier. Highs will be in the low 30s to near 35 degrees.

Friday will be sunnier and chilly. Highs will be in the middle 30s.

Saturday will have higher temperatures with rain showers possible. Afternoon temperatures will reach the low and middle 40s.
