Rain could be a close call by game time

DETROIT -

The mid and high level clouds have overspread the area and will be with us all day. We will likely see nothing more than a few peaks of the blue sky and sun today. Highs will reach 65 to near 70 degrees with winds SE 5-12 mph and a few gusts closer to 20 mph. That means winds will be blowing in at Comerica Park this afternoon. Rain on the radar is west of us all day but it is slowly creeping towards Metro Detroit. The Tigers ALCS Game 3 (First Pitch: 4:07pm) will be comfortable and dry but light rain showers will be moving into the state through the afternoon. Dry air over SE Michigan should win out making it no more than a close call at the game. Most of the rain will start moving into our area around 8 or 9 pm with scattered light rain showers into early Wednesday morning.

  Roads should be drying for Wednesday morning’s commute. For the rest of your hump day, expect scattered light showers as highs only climb into the low to mid 60s at best. Winds will be picking up W 10-20 mph dragging the light rain showers through the afternoon and evening. That means ALCS Game 4 may see a few showers tomorrow night.

  We have Tigers’ Playoff games today through Thursday, so we will be watching the sweeping changes very closely. Track your neighborhood temps, radar, and an early look at your weekend forecasts on the new ClickOnDetroit app (it's free!) in your app store.
