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: 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.

Breaking Weather: An actual thunderstorm and useful rain is likely over southern Michigan
A concentrated and fairly large clump of thunderstorms should move across the southern half of Lower Michigan late tonight and early Friday morning. It’s not going to be so big and so solid of an area of thunderstorms that I can say everyone will get a great rain. There should also be a couple of streaks of one-inch plus rains across the southern half of Lower Michigan. The main threat would be in the southeast third of Lower Michigan, according to the Storm Prediction Center’s severe weather outlook.
