DETROIT - President's Day Weekend is here and Motown will see some sun. Snowflakes are on the way too, but spring-like temps arrive toward the end and early next week.

Saturday evening will be mostly cloudy and chilly with temps in the middle then low 30s. After 6 p.m. some snow showers develop and arrive ahead of a weak cold front. Scattered snow will slicken roads, and minor accumulations are expected.

Skies clear a few hours after midnight, Saturday night-early Sunday morning. It will be chilly with lows in the upper 20s.

Sunday will become mostly sunny, and temperatures rise close to and slightly above 40°F. High pressure provides stable air.

Welcome to President's Day, Monday! As quickly as that area of high pressure arrives, it leaves and a warm front races closer. Clouds increase Sunday night into the holiday, Monday. Rain showers develop arrive along with warmer air. Highs will be in the middle and upper 50s.

Tuesday will be even warmer with more rain and a chance of thunderstorms. Highs will be near 60°F. Downpours are possible, and residents need to watch for ponding on roads and other forms of minor flooding.
