Reaching record highs, severe storm chances

Highs near 60

DETROIT – A crazy very Spring Like day ahead around Metro Detroit. We will have record warmth and a slight chance for a few severe storms in the area tonight. Watch out for patchy dense fog this morning as you head out.

The record for December 23rd is 56° and most of us around SE Lower Michigan will see highs in the low 60s. A warm front is swinging through and it will start to destabilize the skies. Expect a few scattered rain and/or thundershowers throughout the day . Mostly cloudy skies most of the day and a chance for more widespread, heavy rain and thunder will pull in here into the evening. We may see a few strong to severe storms especially down near the Ohio and Indiana borders.

Morning showers on Thursday Christmas Eve and then turning dry and mild in the low 50s. Christmas Day will be partly cloudy to partly sunny taking away our hopes of a White Christmas. Highs on Friday will stop in the mid to upper 40s.

Wet weather returns this weekend. Rain will be heavy again in the afternoon Saturday with temps in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Cooler Sunday and we may see a few snowflakes mixing in with rain showers here and there.
