DETROIT – Rain moving in Saturday evening will be the big story, and there may even be some flakes flying as well.

Rain is expected to continue through sunset, and even change over to a little wet snow as temperatures just above the surface fall cold enough to support some snow. The surface however should remain above freezing most of the night for just about all of us.

With that, the chance for a light accumulation and slick spots, while not ruled out, should be minimal. Temperatures overnight drop into the lower to middle 30s.

Your Sunday features more dry time with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 40s. A few spotty showers will be around in the afternoon and evening, but these will be few and far between.

Another impactful weather-maker moves in Monday and gives way to more rain. Areas along and north of M-59 could even see a wintry mix as temperatures will again be cold enough to support that from time to time. But worth noting that most of what falls with this system is just rain.

The active weather continues through the week with more rain chances Wednesday through Friday, maybe even lingering into Saturday morning. The best chance comes Wednesday with widespread rain and gusty winds. The rain that’ll be around Thursday and Friday will be more scattered in nature, but you’ll still want to keep the umbrellas handy if you’re going to be out.

Friday is a day that we’re going to keep a close eye on as it is opening day for the Tigers at Comerica Park. While some changes are certainly possible in the forecast, it’s safe to say that it will be cool, breezy and there will be a few showers around at times to dodge.
