Looking ahead at more rain, snow throughout Metro Detroit this weekend

Better chances for more winter weather look to be possible as we move into the middle and end of next week

Weekend ahead

4Warn Weather – For the start of the weekend on Saturday, expect cloudy skies to stick around, with chilly temperatures. High temperatures heading for the lower 40s by Saturday afternoon.

As we head into the overnight hours tonight, we’re going to watch an upper-level disturbance roll through the region. This will bring a chance of rain and snow showers for almost everyone, but it will be a light system moving through the region. If we do see any kind of snowfall overnight tonight into Sunday morning, it would more than likely be over the thumb area of the state. Overnight lows, hovering right around the freezing mark as we drop into the lower 30s.

For the end of the weekend on Sunday, we will keep cloud cover in the forecast, and dry conditions sticking around for almost everybody. High temperatures heading back into the lower 40s by Sunday afternoon.

Early next week

Looking ahead into the first few days of next week, the overall flow of the jet stream will flatten out, and that will keep us on the cloudy side of things and also stabilize our temperatures for Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures hovering into the lower 40s both afternoons.

The forecast becomes much more active as we head into the second half of next week. We’re going to watch a strong system head our way, and that will bring chances of rain and snow to everybody for the better portion of the second half of next week.

Another winter storm possible

We kick this off Tuesday night overnight and early on Wednesday morning. Some of the models are bringing in some moisture early, so we will bring in a chance of snow overnight Tuesday into early Wednesday morning. Overnight lows will drop to right around the freezing mark.

Then, with a strong area of low pressure moving off to our east, we will keep the chance of rain and snow showers into the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday. High temperatures warming into the lower 40s both afternoons before some colder air moves into our region by the end of the week.
