Snowflakes could fall Friday in Detroit

Monday may have felt almost like summer in Metro Detroit, but by the end of the week it will seem more like winter.

It might even — perish the thought — snow.

Friday’s forecast calls for a chance of those dreaded white flakes, and/or rain, according to the National Weather Service. The probability of some sort of precipitation: 30 percent.

“It looks like Friday we have (snow) in there,” senior meteorologist Phil Kurimski said. “Rain or snow.”

He added; “The high (will be) in the 40s on Friday. That just means that if you get snow, it’ll just be intermixed with rain.”

Friday night into Saturday morning, temperatures will plunge further, into the high 20s, and climb only into the low 40s during the day Saturday. On the bright side, it should be sunny, according to the weather service.

The potentially wintry weekend will come after a warmer start to the week. Temperatures rose into the low 70s Monday, with partly cloudy skies making it delightful outside.

It will be warm again Tuesday, with highs in the mid to upper 60s, but showers and thunderstorms are expected, especially in the morning.

“It’s likely,” Kurimski said. “We have a 70 percent chance until noon.”
