A rainy and chilly day is in store for Detroit as a cold front moves through. This front will signal the end of the mild stretch of weather and usher in much cooler air for the rest of the week.

Rain will develop across southeastern Michigan before daybreak Monday and continue into the early afternoon hours.

The cold front will move through before noon and, behind it, temperatures will crash.

By 3 or 4 p.m., temperatures will be falling through the 30s and the rain that will be falling could end as some wet snow or a mix of rain and wet snow.

Luckily, there won't be enough snow to cause any accumulations. There will, however, be an opportunity for wet spots on area roadways to freeze mainly after sunset.

Temperatures by 8 p.m. will be near the freezing mark and that could lead to the development of some icy spots on roads and sidewalks.

By Tuesday, high temperatures won't get out of the 30s despite the return of sunshine.

Temperatures will moderate through the end of the week, perhaps approaching 50 by Friday as dry weather takes hold once again.
