Chilly air will continue to filter into Detroit through the weekend.

Highs are expected to level out around 50 over the weekend. The normal high for this time of the year is around 60 degrees.

A chilly pattern has developed that is pulling cold air from Canada down into the United States. This pattern is expected to continue through at least early next week.

However, the air may feel even chillier Saturday afternoon as gusty winds and rain showers move into the city. Occasional gusts up to 40 mph are possible and could produce some damage around the city.

The rest of the weekend should remain chilly with periods of clouds and sun.

More rain showers are expected to return to the city after Monday.

Cloudy skies and rain showers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday evenings but the heaviest of rain will occur on Halloween.

Thursday afternoon will bring heavy rain to the city but skies will clear by Halloween night. With the chilly air and rain showers, a few wet snowflakes could mix in, especially in the areas around Detroit.

An accumulation of snow is not expected, but in some outlying communities, motorists may have to scrape a bit of ice off their windshield in the mornings with temperatures dipping to near freezing.

However rain will return for the first day of November along with some wind to dampen the region and make the air feel even chillier. Meteorologist Jordan Root also contributed to this story.
