4Warn Weather – Friday and Saturday will have the last of the bitter cold temps for a little while. Here’s the latest forecast for Metro Detroit for Friday into next week.

Flake or two rest of today

  • Lake effect snow is falling in isolated bands, but most of us are dry.
  • This trend will continue through the evening, but anything out there will come to an end tonight.

Bitter cold tonight, warmer temps on the way

  • Tonight will be the last of the bitter cold for a while.
  • We’ll see overnight lows in the single digits, but numbers will actually climb a little before daybreak. We’ll wake up in the lower teens.
  • Wind chills around daybreak will range from lower single digits to a few degrees below zero.
  • Get ready for warmer temperatures. We’ll be in the 40s by Tuesday of next week.

Rain chances next week

  • With the warmer temperatures comes the return of rain.
  • Showers are expected Tuesday, then again later Thursday into Friday.
