Metro Detroit weather: Temperatures rise into low 50s

Gusty winds arrive around midnight

By Ben Bailey - Chief Meteorologist

DETROIT - It won't last long, but Wednesday's high temperatures will be coming close to midnight.

Those numbers will be in the low 50s in our Metro and South Zones and upper 40s in our West and North Zones. Expect showers and a few thunderstorms, too, but no severe weather.

Gusty winds will move in with the cold front near midnight, but they’ll be a lot lighter than Tuesday night -- only 30 mph or so.

We'll stay wet through 2 to 3 a.m. Temperatures will drop overnight to a low in the mid-30s.

Thursday will be mainly dry. Wet weather will be just to our south and east. A quick shower or even some light mix in our South or even Metro Zone isn't out of the question, but most of us should stay dry.

Temperatures will stay steady in the mid-30s.

We’ll remain dry from Friday through the weekend. Temperatures will be at their coldest Friday with highs in the upper 20s and nighttime lows in the mid- to upper teens.

We slowly warm up from there. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a high near 30 degrees. Sunday will feature a bit more sunshine with highs above freezing, in the mid-30s.

The first half of next week will finish in the 40s. Check out those numbers in the 10-day forecast.
