Calm weather in Metro Detroit this week ahead of holiday weekend rain chances

Warm, slightly breezy days to end the week

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

It’s quite normal for Mother Nature to deliver a little pleasure after we have felt the pain of her wrath.

The cooler air following the Monday storms is making for some great sleeping weather with the windows open the next few nights, if you’re into that sort of thing. Temperatures start in the upper 50s, then we’ll warm into the lower 60s for the rest of the morning. Watch out for some patchy fog, especially in rural and hilly areas.

Today’s sunrise was at 6:58 a.m.

We are in for quite a treat over the next several days, starting with a nice and mostly sunny Hump Day here in Metro Detroit.

The winds will control our temperature destiny today, and it looks like we will enjoy a nice and warming breeze moving WSW at 8-18 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times. The winds may shift to the WNW, but it looks like it will be late in the day before that happens, allowing our afternoon highs to land in the low and middle 80s.

We’ll have a beautiful blend of sun and clouds today. Some of that slightly cooler air will begin to blow in later tonight.

Tonight’s sunset is at 8:09 p.m.

Pleasant September start

Thursday morning low temperatures will be very pleasant, once again, in the middle and upper 50s under clear skies. The cooler breeze tomorrow will move NW at 5-10 mph, and will knock our high temperatures down a bit into the upper 70s to low 80s. That high temp range is right at our climatological average for the start of September.

Friday is another nice start in the upper 50s to low 60s first thing in the morning. Slightly warmer air will move in to start the holiday weekend.

Look for Friday highs to rebound back into the middle 80s with added humidity. It will be a nice start to Arts, Beats, and Eats festival in Royal Oak, along with the Peach Festival in Romeo.

Labor Day weekend rain chances

Saturday will be nice and warm once again, with temperatures racing well into the middle or even upper 80s. But there is a weak cold front moving across Pure Michigan late Saturday.

We may see a few scattered rain and thundershowers in the late afternoon or evening Saturday, but the showers may come overnight if the front arrives a little later. So, there is a chance that we will see a dry weekend during daylight hours.

Sunday morning showers are possible early in the day. Then we’ll get back to a nice mix of sun and clouds with temps in the upper 70s to low 80s Sunday afternoon.

Labor Day is Monday, and it looks like we will see a beauty of a day with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the lower 80s.
