DETROIT – Welcome Wednesday, Motown.
It will be cloudy tonight with above zero temperatures throughout Southeast Michigan, including Detroit. This is the key because we have precipitation on the way. It will fall as rain.
Morning festivities, including the American Thanksgiving Parade, will be damp when they start. Later, the rain becomes lighter and more dispersed during the holidays. Thereafter, it will be colder Thursday evening and Friday for buyers. This cooler trend persists for the big game (Ohio St. vs. Michigan) on Saturday and travel day Sunday.
The rain develops and arrives Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning. The bottom line is that temperatures remain well above freezing throughout Southeast Michigan. During the night, the morning lows will be in the 30 degrees above 40 degrees.
Thanksgiving and this week
There will be no ice or snow for the Turkey Trot or the start of the America’s Thanksgiving Parade. Spectators and balloon fitters will need their ponchos, however, as scattered showers are possible for the start of the festivities.
A southerly wind will blow between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph. The showers become more scattered in the middle and at the end of the parade from 10 a.m.
After the Detroit Lions face off against the Chicago Bears at Ford Field, the weather will be mostly cloudy, with temperatures reaching the mid-1940s.
The trip from Ford Field or to the Thanksgiving dinner destinations will be drier under mostly cloudy skies. It will be cool and fresh. Evening temperatures will drop to 30 degrees.
Savvy shoppers planning to camp outside or visit their favorite stores before opening will face cold and windy conditions. Lower into the night until Friday morning in the 1920s.
Daytime temperatures on Friday will only be in the mid-1930s under partially sunny skies. Snow showers are possible, but not enough to make travel impossible.
College football’s biggest rivalry comes on Saturday in Ann Arbor. Michigan hosts Ohio State with a noon kickoff. Bottom-out temperatures will be at or below freezing, so move closer to the grill to stay warm. It will be cool and partly sunny throughout the game. Put on your favorite corn and blue coat, hat, scarf, and gloves. The peaks will be in the mid-1930s.
The day of return Sunday will be cool and mostly cloudy, with a few snowflakes on or off. Maybe close to 40 degrees.
