Forecast: Showers on the way to metro Detroit

Temperatures are trending cooler, too

By Paul Gross - Meteorologist

DETROIT - Showers will develop tonight, and it's going to be a close call with the Detroit Tigers game at Comerica Park.

Rain should move into our western suburbs between 8:30 and 10 p.m., and hopefully not into downtown Detroit until 10 p.m. or after. I'll be at Comerica Park advising the Tigers about the approaching weather, and will try to tweet you an update if I have the chance (you can follow me at @PaulGrossLocal4).

Temperatures will fall into the mid 60s by the end of the game, and into the low 50s later tonight.

Overnight showers should end before dawn, and shouldn't pose any problems for the Tuesday morning commute. Although we may eventually get some morning sunshine, we'll see puffy cumulus clouds pop up by late morning, and spread out into a mostly cloudy sky for the afternoon. A few spotty, light showers are possible Tuesday afternoon, with the best chance to see one being north of M-59 and east of I-75. It'll be a windy day, as well, with northwest winds blowing at 20-25 mph, with higher gusts.

Temperatures should start in the low 50s, and only rise into the mid 50s as colder air streams in and counteracts any heating from the sun. By Tuesday evening, temps will fall into the plan on dressing warm if you'll be going to the Tiger game (although it will be dry).

Becoming mostly clear Tuesday night. Lows in the low 30s.

Mostly sunny Wednesday, with highs in the mid 50s. Mostly clear Wednesday night, with lows in the mid to upper 30s.

Partly cloudy on Thursday, with highs near 60. Showers develop Thursday night, with lows in the mid 40s.

Breezy with a chance of showers on Friday, and highs in the low 60s.

Partly cloudy and breezy on Saturday, with highs in the low 50s, then mostly sunny on Sunday, with highs still stuck in the low 50s.
