Rain Expected All Weekend, Snow Could Arrive Saturday Night

Better bring an umbrella if you're headed to one of many events in the community on Sunday.

Rain Expected All Weekend, Snow Could Arrive Saturday Night

The possibility of snow in the Greater West Bloomfield area is in the forecast on Saturday night, while rain is expected to fall all weekend.

Friday's forecast calls for rain after 1 a.m., amounting to about one tenth to a quarter of an inch possible, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The low will dip down to 35 degrees and it won't get much warmer than that on Saturday.

According to the NWS, Saturday will offer rain and snow before 4 p.m., with a high near 41. Little to no snow is expected to accumulate, so put away the shovels. But if you're headed out on the first night of Hanukkah, pack your windproof jacket to deal with gusts up to 20 m.p.h. and low temperatures below freezing.

On Sunday, there is an 80 percent chance of more rain, so be sure to pack an umbrella if you're headed to Music @ Main with Chris Ayotte, the Greater West Bloomfield Historical Society Open House, Chanukah Wonderland at the Orchard Mall, or the Hanukkah celebration at the Jewish Community Center.

Little rain is expected to accumulate Sunday night, although lows hovering around freezing may cause some snow to fall. Looking ahead to Monday, there is a 30 percent chance of snow showers, with a high temperature near 37.
