Before we get into the forecast, a friendly reminder to set your clocks forward one hour tonight. The clocks should jump from 1:59 to 3:00 a.m. We lose an hour of sleep, but the sunrise and sunset times will change to 8:01 a.m. and 7:38 p.m. respectively on Sunday, offering us more afternoon and evening sunshine.

Meanwhile, as the days get so longer, our weather gets warmer... for the most part. March is a transition month into spring, and the weather generally warms up quicker than other months. The normal high temperature for March 9 is 41 degrees.

Here's your forecast:

Saturday night: Decreasing clouds as high pressure moves in. Very cold with lows around 10 degrees. Some spots may get into the single digits.

Sunday: The cold does not stick around. Temperatures rebound with highs in the mid 30s. Skies will be mostly sunny.

Sunday night: Becoming mostly cloudy as a low pressure system approaches. The system should keep any precipitation to our north. Lows will only be in the low 30s as a warm front passes and as skies become overcast.

Monday: The warmth really takes hold as highs go back into the mid 40s. As the system linger nearby, some light drizzle is possible.

Tuesday has a chance for rain and snow mix as temperatures start to drop again, but the worst winter weather may stay south of Michigan. Wednesday will be colder with highs only in the 20s and will likely see some light snowfall.

Temperatures stay cold into Thursday, but get back into the upper 30s to possibly 40 by Friday.

Stay tuned for updated forecasts!
