Coldest temps of the season coming to Metro Detroit this weekend

Cool Friday leads into even cooler Saturday

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROIT – The change in the air is now here in Metro Detroit.

The cold front has moved through, and the rain showers are gone along with it. Skies are going to stay mostly cloudy as temperatures continue to fall early this morning. The winds are a difference-maker, making it feel a few degrees cooler in that cool breeze.

It has been jacket weather every morning this week, but you might not be able to shed that layer later today.

Our Friday skies will stay mostly cloudy to partly sunny most of the day with a consistent and gusty wind moving NW at 7-15 mph, gusting to over 20 mph at times. It’s just enough of a breeze to help some light rain showers blow off Lake Huron, mainly into parts of Southern Ontario this afternoon.

Most of Metro Detroit won’t see a drop. Instead, we’ll have short stretches of sunshine and high temperatures that will struggle to get past the low and middle 50s. The clouds will really start to thin out after 4 p.m., making for a pretty sunset but keep that jacket and sweatshirt handy tonight.

Tonight’s sunset is at 7:05 p.m.

Coldest temps of the season

The coldest temperatures of the season will be upon us on Saturday morning.

Clearing skies will coincide with the arrival of more cool air, causing most of our suburbs to land near or even below freezing. Apple orchards and cider mills will be ideal later, as Saturday will have high temperatures rebounding back into the middle and upper 50s in a nice mix of sun and clouds.

The pesky breezes will kick up again, moving W at 7-15 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph -- which means dress in layers if you are going to be out and about.

Warmer Sunday

Sunday won’t be as chilly, with morning temps in the upper 30s under partly cloudy skies. The winds will be the variable to help us warm. They’ll still be gusty, but the winds will shift SW at 7-15 mph, gusting to 20 mph and drawing in milder air from the south.

High temperatures should be back in the low-to-middle 60s on a dry Sunday here and in Southern Ontario.

Some rain possible Monday

Monday is Indigenous People’s Day, and it is looking pretty good. There is one computer model that tries to bring a few random morning showers into our area, but most of the computer model data keeps those showers south into Ohio. Let’s go with partly cloudy skies with highs again in the low-to-middle 60s.

Tuesday looks warmer with more sun, as highs return to a wonderful 70 degrees. Our next rain chances will be Wednesday on and off all day and we really need it so, fingers crossed.
