By Andrew Humphrey, CBM - Meteorologist And Station Scientist

DETROIT - The first full weekend of spring 2019 is under way, and we have some sunshine coming back with slightly higher temperatures. First we have to deal with another cold night.

Please join me on Twitter (@AndrewHumphrey) for regular weather updates.

Friday evening will be chilly and mostly cloudy. Whether you’re going to see Hamilton or head to your favorite sports bar to watch college basketball, remember your coat, hat, scarf and gloves to stay warm. Dinnertime temps will be in the middle and upper 30s with wind chills near or below freezing.

Friday night becomes partly cloudy and colder. Overnight lows will be in the teens and low 20s. It still remains a little blustery with windchill‘s in the single digits by dawn.

Saturday will be much sunnier with higher temperatures in the afternoon. Ours will be in the middle and upper 40s under blue sky’s.  Great day to get the car washed and go running or toss the frisbee around in some invigorating here. Many folks will just need a sweatshirt to stay warm.

Sunday will be partly sunny and milder. Afternoon temps will be in the low 50s. This is 5 to 10°F above average.

A new area of low pressure moves in late Sunday night and Monday morning. Rain and snow showers are possible with Monday's temperatures in the 20s and 30s.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be dryer. Chili on Tuesday with highs in the low 40s. Daytime temps closer to 50°F on Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday really feel warmer with the mercury closer to 60°F.
