Colder weekend with snow chances ahead for Metro Detroit: What to expect

We are seeing a steady increase in clouds moving into Metro Detroit early this Friday morning and that will be the theme for the rest of the day. Temperatures are in the upper 40s to lower 50s as you head outside, and you should probably grab the umbrella before you go.

DETROIT – Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!

We are seeing a steady increase in clouds moving into Metro Detroit early this Friday morning and that will be the theme for the rest of the day. Temperatures are in the upper 40s to lower 50s as you head outside, and you should probably grab the umbrella before you go.

It will remain dry through the early morning hours and may remain dry most of the day for some, depending on where you live or where you will be.

Remnants of former Hurricane Nicole are quickly moving tropical moisture from the deep south through the eastern third of the country today brining better rain chances to Ohio and Southern Ontario mid to late morning through the early to mid-afternoon.

That also means the eastern half of Metro Detroit will be on the fringe of this rain maker moving up from the south including areas east of I-275 but mostly into Canada. Skies will stay cloudy on this Veteran’s Day even for those of you who don’t see any Friday showers and high temperatures will settle around 60 degrees with light winds SW turning NW 5-12mph.

Sunset is at 5:15 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday

A cold front is moving through Friday night into Saturday morning so our winds will start picking up but this front will be pushing that Nicole moisture farther and farther east and out of our hair.

Saturday weather conditions will be touch and go on Saturday with more clouds than sun and a few afternoon sprinkles and/or flurries.

Morning lows will be in the middle to upper 30s and high temperatures will only make it into the lower 40s with a steady and cool wind WNW 10-20mph keeping it feeling much cooler if you have any plans to be outdoors at say, maybe a football game? Bundle up!

Sunday is going to be even cooler with morning lows in the middle and upper 20s as highs struggle to even make it out of the 30s. Again, we cannot rule out a few stray flurries during the morning and afternoon. Otherwise, it’s partly cloudy to partly sunny with gusty winds NW 15-20 mph keeping those wind chills in the 20s all weekend. Bundle up once more.

Next week lookahead

Monday and pretty much all of next week will be on the chilly side with morning lows in the 20s and afternoon highs near 40F. Monday looks partly cloudy and dry but we expect increasing clouds, cool air, and a few flakes flying both Tuesday and Wednesday. It doesn’t look like these snow chances will amount to anything and we will certainly keep you posted. There is another shot at snow Thursday as well. Stay tuned.
