Metro Detroit weather: Tracking summer heat Friday, rain chances this weekend
Some wildfire smoke out west created clouds here yesterday that stalled temperatures only briefly because we expect to warm up nicely today. Good Finally Friday morning! Temperatures are in the middle and upper 50s as you step out just about anywhere here in Metro Detroit under mostly clear skies. Watch out for that pesky patchy fog which has presented itself again reducing visibility in spots as you hit the road early on this final day of the work and school week. A warm front is working over our area setting us up for a nice little warm up around Pure Michigan today.
Metro Detroit weather: Tracking showers and the sun’s return
Early morning showers are surrounding Metro Detroit with most of the moisture falling south and east of Detroit as we get going on this Tuesday. Skies are mostly cloudy with temperatures in the middle 50s as you head out and about this morning. A couple of nuisance showers may slow your roll as we keep in mind how badly the rain is needed. You can give our radar a quick look before you hit the road or pound the pavement on the 4 Warn Weather App. It will show you where the showers are and which direction they are headed. The rain will not be the big weather story of the day as this slow moving storm does exit our area today.
Metro Detroit weather: A big weekend with rain nearby
We have to take the good with the bad and today is another tally on the good side making for a pretty nice weather week overall here in Metro Detroit. Good Finally Friday morning! We are waking up with more of that pleasant and cooler air keeping temperatures in the middle 50s outside your door prior to sunrise under mostly clear skies. The one minor weather nuisance this morning is that patchy fog like we’ve seen the last couple of mornings so just watch out in those rural and hilly areas all around and take it easy. If you plan on being out all day, you may need a light jacket or sweatshirt this morning but you’ll be able to rock those shorts as we warm up today.
Metro Detroit weather: A Labor Day struggle for holiday showers
It is mostly dry early on this Monday and Happy Labor Day! A stationary front is wobbling around just south of Metro Detroit which will keep a chance for a few showers around this morning although Exact Track Radar is showing no significant signs of showers. It looks like our skies will stay mostly cloudy most of the day including heading out your door early with temperatures in the lower to middle 60s and some spotty drizzle.
Metro Detroit weather: Nice stretch continues
September is the beginning of Meteorological Fall because breaking seasons down into three specific months make it easier to keep weather and climate records. The Autumnal Equinox is still three weeks away which means we are not officially done with summer yet. It feels every bit like a late summer morning out there with Metro Detroit temps in the upper 50s to low 60s on this Thursday under mostly clear skies and dry conditions if you’re heading out for a light morning jog or heading into the old workplace.
Metro Detroit weather: A nice lull before holiday weekend
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 are in the upper 50s for those of you are heading out and about before the sun rises over Metro Detroit. We will then warm into the lower 60s for the rest of the morning. Watch out for some patchy fog, especially in rural and hilly areas.
Metro Detroit weather: Mild morning with 80s later
Good Wednesday morning! It’s another great start to the day after a very comfortable sleeping night if you had those windows open. We have temperatures in the middle and upper 50s for those of you 30 to 40 minutes outside of Detroit. The urban heat island closer to downtown shows temps in the lower 60s as you head out for that morning walk. Concrete and asphalt store more heat, making it harder to be as cool in Detroit compared to many of our suburbs. Watch out for some patchy fog in spots as you hit the road this morning.
Metro Detroit weather: Fantastic Friday with weekend rain chances
Our Finally Friday, as Brandon calls it (and by the way, he’ll be back Monday!), will end the work week in spectacular fashion with lots of sunshine, low humidity, and highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees (26 to 27 degrees Celsius). Wind will be light…from the north at perhaps 3 to 6 mph.
Metro Detroit weather: Not as hot with showers within reach
Good Wednesday morning! It’s starting to feel a little nicer out there after a cold front came through late Tuesday leaving Metro Detroit temperatures in the middle and upper 60s as you head out today. Conditions are mostly dry even though clouds are pouring in here with just a few very light rain showers here and there through the morning drive on this Hump Day. We will be on the fringe of showers and shower chances the next few days and today is no exception.
Metro Detroit weather: Clear skies for tonight’s Ford Fireworks
Happy Monday morning Metro Detroit! I know, I know. At least temperatures have moved into the comfortable zone after a cold front came through here late Sunday and a second cool front moves through this morning. Temperatures are in the upper 50s to low 60s as you head out to begin the work week or take that morning bike ride, walk, or jog. The skies are mostly clear as you head out so grab those sunglasses and maybe throw a sweatshirt in the mix if you’re planning on staying downtown for the return of the Ford Fireworks in Detroit tonight. We will broadcast the great show on Local 4 if you are staying home.
