DETROIT - Scattered rain remains a possibility Saturday afternoon in the Detroit area and in East Lansing for the big Michigan vs. Michigan State football game. Wolverines and Spartans fans will need their maize and blue or green and white ponchos with extra layering to stay warm and dry while tailgating and watching the game. Highs will be in the upper 40s with a northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

Soggy conditions linger into Saturday evening as temps fall through the middle and low 40s.
