Upper 60s, mid 70s with some wet weather later in metro Detroit

Cold front approaches, wet weather expected Thursday evening

DETROIT - Temperatures are already exceeding expectations and that's never a bad thing in Spring!

Highs will get into the upper 60s to mid 70s all around Metro Detroit. The downside is the gusty wind. The winds are SW 15-30 mph with gusts over 35 mph from time to time.  Our window for wet weather is 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. today as a cold front approaches.

This is not a real strong cold front and will likely only bring scattered rain and thunder with no threat of severe weather. The evening hours will be mostly calm as the rain moves out and the winds die down.

Friday is a beautiful finish to the work and school week around SE Michigan with highs climbing back to around 60 to 65 degrees. Friday also brings mostly to partly sunny skies and lighter winds SW 7-12 mph.

Saturday will be the better of the two weekend days hitting the mid to upper 60s with partly cloudy skies. We will see scattered rain and thunder showers on Sunday as we try to climb back into the mid 60s. But this is a stronger cold front and may bring a few wet snowflakes as temps take a dive Monday and Tuesday.

We don't expect much snow but won't be surprised if Parts of SE Michigan receive a coating of snow early next week. Get the latest radar images on ClickOnDetroit.com.
