Rain is expected to follow warmer temperatures in Metro Detroit's forecast heading into Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

The agency's meteorologists predict temperatures will rise above freezing and into the mid- and upper 30s on Thursday. Detroit could see a high of 38 degrees and a low of 32 degrees.

However, the chances of rain will increase after midnight and there could be some light freezing rain early Friday morning as temperatures dip below freezing, the weather service said. Less than a tenth of an inch is predicted to fall.

It also said the greatest potential for light freezing rain will fall above a line between Pontiac and Howell.

Meteorologists aren't anticipating any significant impact from the rain, but there could be slick spots on the roads, which may make travel difficult early Friday morning.
