Temps rising in Metro Detroit
The cold is moving out, warmth is moving in, and you’re going to need your umbrella.
That’s the basic weather forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service weather wizards stationed at White Lake Township.
“There’s not much happening today,” meteorologist Rachel Kulik said. “It will be clear, sunny and dry on Friday, but there’s a chance that light snow will move in between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Saturday. But then temperatures will begin to rise and the snow will turn to rain.”
According to the NWS, the showers will last through Sunday right into Monday.
“The weekend and Monday will be warm enough to mean rain instead of snow,” Kulik said. “Sunday’s high will be about 47 degrees with a low of about 42. On Monday, we should reach 50 degrees, possibly 51 in the metro area.”
But then things begin to cool down again on Tuesday when the high temperatures will dip down into the 30s.
“And it will stay in that temperature range for the rest of the week,” Kulik said.
The record low for this date was 3 degrees set in 1880.
