Cold weather ruled for the Detroit area for the weekend, but a warming trend is expected this week.
Temperatures are expected to rise into the 30s early this week and will approach 40 by Wednesday.
Before the warm temperatures arrive however, folks in the area will have to deal with a little snow late Saturday.
A weak disturbance is expected to pass and will bring a period of light snow. Little to no accumulation is expected, however.
With warmer temperatures arriving for the new week, the threat for a little ice will increase as a disturbance passes through; although at this point the best chance appears to be well south of the city, a period of heavy snow may fall instead however.
Dry conditions will move in through the middle of the week with the warmth hanging on through the end of this week.
Tropical Depression Two has formed in the Atlantic and could become the next tropical storm of the season by midweek.
Warm and humid air in place over much of the Midwest and Northeast at midweek will contribute to the risk of drenching, gusty and locally severe thunderstorms on Wednesday.
After temperatures briefly climb to typical midsummer levels, another cooldown will roll into the Midwest and expand to the East for the last part of July.
Severe storms will fire up Tuesday afternoon and evening, threatening outdoor activities and travel for many.
