Metro Detroit forecast: Expect cool temperatures and chances for rain this week
Lots of clouds, cool temperatures and hit-and-miss rain chances abound. Rain amounts should be light, especially compared to what we picked up over the long weekend (2 inches plus in some spots!).

Weekend temperatures will be slightly warmer but fall short of 80 degrees, before we cool below normal again early next week. Outside of that, we should get at least some sunshine, with our warmest temperatures of the forecast, highs in the mid-to-upper 80s.
