Wet Monday night, Tuesday for Detroit

Quarter inch to three-quarters of an inch possible


DETROIT – Wet weather arrives Monday night in the Detroit and Southeast Michigan. All of the region remains above freezing overnight and Tuesday morning. But temperatures take another nosedive later this week.

Please join me on Twitter (@AndrewLocal4) for regular weather updates.

A small batch of scattered sprinkles and light rain arrive at dinnertime, Monday. Temperatures will be above freezing; in the middle and upper 30s. Wet, not frozen roads, will be the main concern.

Same with Monday night as a larger area of rain arrives from the south and west. Temps will be in the middle 30s at midnight, then rise to near 40 degrees by dawn, Tuesday. Wet roads will be a problem for drivers with late night or early morning plans. Fog may reduce visibility to 2 miles or less. Remember to use low beams in any fog-laden neighborhoods.

It will be wet for workers and students returning to bus stops Tuesday morning. It remains relatively mild all day. Afternoon temps will be near 45 degrees. Drivers must remain alert in misty areas with reduced visibility and wetness. Low-beam headlights are essential to see and be seen.

A cold front pushes through Tuesday night. As a result temperatures plummet. This Arctic blast brings below-freezing temps in the 20s Wednesday with a chance of flurries.

Morning lows will be in the single digits and low teens Thursday and Friday. Afternoon highs will be in the teens and low 20s. Wind chills will be below zero for extended periods of times.

Saturday and Sunday remain frigid, also. Media members must dress warmly as they arrive in Motown for the 2017 North American International Auto Show's (NAIAS's) Media Week.
