Metro Detroit weather: Warm, chance of rain Wednesday

Temperatures to stay above average


DETROIT – We came so close to a record high Tuesday, but we’ll still be above average Wednesday.

Even though temperatures will drop to the mid- and upper 50s overnight, that’s close to our normal high temperature for the day. We’ll see a few extra clouds with light winds.

Wednesday starts dry, but will finish wet and possibly with a few rumbles too. Expect clouds to increase throughout the day.

Highs will be wide-ranging from the upper 50s to the low 70s. Check the 4ZONE Forecast for a breakdown of those numbers. Rain and a few storms will start showing up around 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. in our West and North Zones. That will gradually spread south and east through the evening. We’re not expecting any severe weather, but a few lightning strikes aren’t out of the question.

The last of the rain exits early Thursday morning with a mainly dry day ahead. Even with emerging sunshine, temperatures will be back to average in the mid-50s. Beyond that, it’s a whole lot of the same -- mostly sunny skies with temperatures close to average until the middle of next week. That’s all in our 10-day forecast.
