DETROIT – Welcome to Friday, Motown.

Tonight has fewer scattered rain before midnight. As temperatures drop, scattered rain transforms into scattered snow. A few flakes are possible, tomorrow, too. Milder, brighter weather arrives Palm Sunday. It becomes warmer next week.

Friday night will be mostly cloudy and colder. Overnight lows will be near freezing or a bit lower; in the upper 20s and low 30s. Showers become more widely scattered, and those showers will transform from raindrops to snowflakes as the temperatures drops.

Sunrise is at 7:02 a.m.

This weekend

Saturday will be the quite chilly with scattered snowflakes in the morning and a scattered rain-snow mix. Temperatures will be in the low 40s to near 45 degrees. Bundle up well again for the Tigers’ 1:10 p.m. baseball game against the White Sox.

Sunday will be brighter and milder. This will be a much better day at Comerica Park. It will be mostly sunny with highs in the low 50s to near 55 degrees.

Next week

Monday and Tuesday will be partly sunny with scattered rain showers. Those days will not be wash-outs, and that’s very good because it becomes much warmer. Highs will be near 60 degrees Monday and near 65 degrees Tuesday.

Wednesday and Thursday will be warmer with highs in the upper 60s. Showers and thunderstorms are possible.
