Updated On: Mar 22 2014 01:45:43 PM EDT
Saturday morning will have some chilly rain and wet snow for parts of Southeast Michigan. The precipitation will be light and scattered; not enough to shut down thoroughfares or cancel plans but enough to slow drivers a bit. Temps will be around freezing; in the low 30s. Ramps, bridges and overpasses will have isolated areas of freezing. The best chance for slipperiness will be before and around 8am. Showers pull away afterward.
Saturday afternoon will be mostly cloudy to partly sunny and chilly with highs in the low 40s. The wind will blow from the west at 9 to 14 mph. Families will still need the winter coats with these below-average temperatures.
Saturday evening will become colder with temps dropping through the 30s into the 20s before midnight. Skies will be partly cloudy.
Frigid air blows in Saturday night pushing the mercury into the teens overnight and by Sunday morning. Partly cloudy skies persist.
Sunday will be mostly sunny for Detroit's Nain Rouge and other outdoor activities. Morning lows will be in the teens, and afternoon highs will be in the middle 20s.
Cold weather remains in the Motown area early next week with highs in the low 30s and lows in the teens and low 20s. After some snow Tuesday, milder weather arrives second half of next week.
