Metro Detroit weather: Tracking storms as Autumn awaits
We had to close a few windows early this Tuesday morning if you opened them as the cold front came through late yesterday. Temperatures here in Metro Detroit are in the middle and upper 50s outside your home under mostly clear skies and a lighter wind NW 5-10mph and with some of that patchy fog. Fog is unavoidable for parts of our area following a little bit of rain and a dip in morning temps. It will warm nicely throughout the day today with sun and a shift in the wind.
Metro Detroit weather: Heat Advisory as storms loom
It’s double trouble for Metro Detroit on this Wednesday. Happy Hump Day! The best part of our day will be the morning hours, the best and safest for any kind of working out or working outside.

Metro Detroit weather: Tracking Wednesday rain but it’s waning
Storm Tracker 4 Radar is picking up scattered rain and thundershowers moving through Metro Detroit from northwest to southeast this morning. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like everybody is going to get showers, and what showers you do get won’t make a very big difference to our parched ground. Still, every little bit helps. A few areas (North and West Zones) may see a couple of rounds of morning showers producing a quarter to a half an inch of rain as a cool front slowly brushes by our area. Even though the showers are not widespread, they will continue past sunrise impacting parts of our morning drive with temperatures in the middle 60s as you head out. The umbrella will not be needed all day.

There is a better chance of showers and storms this weekend.
Metro Detroit weather: Metro Detroit weather: Clear skies and warming, when to catch “shooting star” tonight
The rain we woke up to this morning moved out right on schedule, and abundant sunshine graced our skies this afternoon. Yes, it was breezy with 25 to 30-mph gusts (also right on schedule), but those breezes didn’t feel all that bad with temperatures that soared into the (16 to 17 degrees Celsius).

Metro Detroit weather: Scattered strong-to-severe thunderstorms heading for SE Michigan
Scattered strong-to-severe thunderstorms have developed south of a warm front this afternoon in Indiana and Ohio, and they’re headed our way. The key to those storms maintaining their severity as they move into Michigan will be how far north that warm front makes it because we will not see severe weather north of the front. Right now, I think the front will potentially cross the state line into Lenawee and southwest Monroe counties, so that’s where the best chance is for marginally severe wind gusts and marginally severe hail into the evening hours.
Metro Detroit weather: Temperatures plummet as clouds clear Thursday night
