Metro Detroit weather: The best of the week before big changes
Good Thursday morning! We have had this trend of harmless high clouds streaking across the Michigan skies and that trend continues today. We have a mix of clear to partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the middle 40s to near 50 degrees for anyone heading out and about early for that walk to work or the simple walk to the car. These clouds are coming from bigger storms to our west, but they will produce no wet weather for us here in Metro Detroit both this morning and this afternoon.
Metro Detroit weather: Tracking spooky rain chances
It’s finally Friday! Happy weekend everyone! We are off to a solid start with some cloud cover coming and going keeping Metro Detroit temps slightly warmer as you hit the road or pound the pavement. Friday morning temperatures are in the middle 30s to near 40F closer to the Big D. We have no moisture leaking from these morning clouds making for a smooth morning commute with some beautiful colors in the skies as the sun rises through the high clouds. Daylight Saving Time ends next weekend or the first Sunday in November when we fall back one hour which means our sunrise will be back closer to 7am in about 10 days.
Metro Detroit weather: Tracking more rain and snowflakes
Good Wednesday morning! We have had a few more significant rain showers move through Metro Detroit overnight with a few areas possibly seeing snowflakes trying to stick to grassy areas. Most of us are only seeing liquid precipitation. Temperatures are in the upper 30s with gusty winds creating tough wind chills in the upper 20s to low 30s and the need for a hat and gloves if you have to be out in it. There will be a few showers as we approach sunrise, so the wet roadways will slow down your drive as you get going on a Wednesday with the umbrella by your side. There’s not much good news in these cool temps and blustery conditions, but we also expect fewer showers throughout the day today.
Metro Detroit weather: Soaring to the 70s before rain
It is a trouble-free start to your Tuesday here in Metro Detroit which is to say it’s a good morning. Skies are mostly clear with temperatures in the low to middle 40s and a few of those usual suburbs will dip quickly into the upper 30s with a little patchy fog. Those spots are certainly the exception and not the rule. You will want that light jacket this morning, but you can also dress for a late summer kind of day today with the highest of our weekly highs on tap.
Buckle Up! Thursday’s weather is a roller coaster
It is not as cold out there this morning with Metro Detroit temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s as you walk the dog or start heading to work or school. Conditions are dry and it is milder thanks to the warming here all week plus the addition of some cloud cover which prevents cooling during the overnight. We will have some pesky clouds coming and going most of the day with rain expected here later tonight. So, you won’t need that umbrella unless you plan on being away from home all day and all night. Allow me to explain...
Metro Detroit weather: Flirting with freezing before warming to 70 degrees
We have many suburbs flirting with freezing temperatures early this morning around Metro Detroit without any Frost Advisories. Good Tuesday morning! Obviously, we will see some patchy frost again this morning the farther away you are from Detroit. Areas within 20 to 30 miles of downtown will stay in the upper 30s to lower 40s under partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. It almost goes without saying that in addition to patchy frost, we will see some patchy fog in the usual spots, just a forewarning for anyone traveling north or heading west on I-94 or I-96 west of I-275.
Impact of Hurricane Ian could interrupt your weekend forecast in Metro Detroit -- What to expect
As I write this, Hurricane Ian is making its second landfall in two days, with the South Carolina coast bearing the brunt. As the storm progresses up the east coast, we’ll be on the fringe of its moisture shield, so expect our mostly clear skies Friday evening to become partly cloudy on Saturday.
