Detroit – The sun will stretch on the weekends until Monday morning, so get the shadows when you step out the door.
The clouds will be higher this afternoon and by dinner time we should be completely cloudy. The heights should only reach 30 seconds (3 to 4 degrees Celsius), and perhaps touch 40 degrees in our western suburbs as the easterly winds at 10 to 15 miles per hour from the cold lakes will keep the coldest temperatures in the east.
Sunrise today at 7:45 AM, and sunset today at 7:40 PM
Areas of light snow, sleet and freezing rain will cross the area on Monday night. Since the aforementioned easterly winds will direct the dry air from Ontario, this dry air will keep precipitation amounts light.
However, even a slight amount of freezing rain can cause an icy pavement, so be especially careful if you’re going out late Monday night – especially on bridges and upper walkways. Monday night temperatures drop to nearly 30 degrees (-1 degrees Celsius), then start to rise towards dawn. East winds from 10 to 15 mph.
Any winter mix left in the area first thing on Tuesday morning will change to light rain regions, with temperatures soaring into the mid-40s (8 ° C). East to northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.
Partly cloudy on Tuesday night, with lows as low as 30 seconds (0 ° C).
It looks like the luck of the Irish will be with us on Wednesday, as we will have at least partial sunshine for St Patrick’s Day 2021, high near 50 degrees (10 degrees Celsius).
Clouds increase on Wednesday night, with lows in the mid-30s (1 to 2 ° C).
Heavy rain is possible on Thursday, with a high in the forties (9 ° C), and it will be an emotional day as well.
The rain ends on Thursday night, with lows in 30 seconds (0 ° C).
It gets sunny mostly on Fridays, with highs in the mid-40s (7-8 ° C).
Clear skies prevail on Friday night, and it will be significantly cooler with lows in the mid-20s (-4 ° C).
A large, sprawling high pressure zone will dominate the area this weekend, bringing in a ton of sunshine and light winds and near 50 ° (10 ° C) on Saturday, and in the mid-1950s (13 ° C) on Sunday.
And what a coincidence: the vernal equinox, the moment the sun passes directly over the equator on its way to the northern hemisphere, occurs at 5:57 am on Saturday morning! So the first day of spring will already feel like spring this year!
