Metro Detroit weather forecast: Partly cloudy skies

By Brandon Roux - Meteorologist, Segment Reporter/Producer

DETROIT - A chilly start in the upper 20s to low 30s with wind chills in the teens to low 20s through the early morning hours around Metro Detroit.

Lake effect clouds and flakes are flying in with the winds NW 7-12 mph through the morning and into your afternoon with some clearing at times through the late morning and afternoon.

Wednesday afternoon highs will hover in the mid 30s under partly cloudy skies. Anyone driving or traveling today will run into some light snow showers moving through the Saginaw Valley and in Western Lower Michigan at times today.

Thanksgiving Day forecast:

Thanksgiving Day starts cloudy and dry with temps along Woodward Avenue around 30 degrees for early parade goers. Our suburbs will be cooler in the 20s but the winds will be light and the clouds will not produce any wet weather. We will likely see more clouds than sun during the start of  America’s Thanksgiving Parade and will get more and more Turkey Day sun as we head through the late morning and afternoon. So, a chilly start with highs in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees. If we can hang onto the afternoon sun, it may get a little warmer, but not much.

Black Friday shoppers start cool around 30 degrees out looking for those early morning deals, and then warming back into the mid and upper 40s with a nice mix of sun and clouds. We may get a few rain showers late, late Friday or overnight into Saturday morning. It looks like a wintry mix with more of us seeing light rain as temps stay near 40 degrees as the moisture moves in. Saturday afternoon will be better with breezy conditions and sunshine returning bringing temps to the mid 40s.  It’s only slightly cooler Sunday only in the upper 30s and low 40s with breezes and sun. We may see 50 degrees Monday and Tuesday next week.
