Tracking snow and rain this weekend

DETROIT – We start on Friday with cloudy skies and only a few very light flakes around.

We should start to see a few breaks in the clouds until late in the morning or early afternoon, and maybe even become partially cloudy for a few hours.

Highs are expected to return in the mid-1930s (2 degrees Celsius) this afternoon, and the wind is becoming southerly at 5-10 mph. As long as we have sunshine this afternoon, it should be a pretty pleasant day.

Today’s sunrise is at 7:57 am and today’s sunset is at 5:03 pm

The sky quickly becomes cloudy on Friday night, with lows in the upper 20s (-2 degrees Celsius). Southwest wind at 7-12 mph.

Light snow develops on Saturday morning, followed by light rain and snow in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30s (3 to 4 degrees Celsius).

Light rain and snow are possible on Saturday night, with lows in the 30s minimum (0-1 degrees Celsius).

If you read my article yesterday, we discussed a change in the forecast for Sunday due to computer models that now take a higher level disturbance from the southwest and calibrate it with the higher level disturbance associated with the weak cold front that crosses the state.

Well, this morning’s models returned to where they were two days ago and now keep the two disorders separate. As such, the cold front seems progressive again (i.e. it is constantly moving east, instead of slowing down and stopping), so I think we will keep Sunday mostly dry, albeit cloudy, with highs again in the upper 30s ( 4 degrees) Celsius).

It seems that a modest weather system will produce another chance of light rain and snow on Monday, with highs of almost 40 degrees (5 degrees Celsius).

Partly cloudy Tuesday, with highs again near 40 degrees (5 degrees Celsius).

Mostly cloudy at Festivus (Wednesday), and it gets windy. However, those winds will blow from the south, which should raise temperatures by the mid-1940s (7 degrees Celsius). Happy Holidays! Good luck with your strength attractions and with spreading your grievances …

Rainstorms develop on Wednesday evening, then change into light snow overnight after a strong cold front passes. If temperatures drop fast enough and we get a northeast wind behind the front, then we will get help from Lake Huron, which would increase our chances of getting enough coverage to give us a white Christmas!

Christmas Eve and Christmas Eve itself will be windy and cold, with temperatures kept constant around 30 degrees (-1 degrees Celsius) during the day, with wind chills around 10 degrees (-12). Celsius degrees). It is unclear what our wind direction will be on Thursday. If it’s a northwest wind, as a pattern suggests, then we probably won’t have any more snow showers during the day. If more westerly wind develops, as another model suggests, then some lake-effect snowflakes from Lake Michigan will reach the entire state.

Christmas Day will continue to be windy or windy, with chances of snow showers again dependent on wind direction, as discussed above. Highs in the middle up to 20 years (-3 degrees Celsius), with wind chills in simple figures (-17 to -12 degrees Celsius). Merry Christmas!
