Metro Detroit forecast: Winds relaxing with temps in the 40s later


It’s almost like yesterday’s weather never happened with all of the snow melted away. But we are picking up the pieces and dealing with power outages from the gusty winds overnight. The winds are relaxing today with mostly cloudy skies and temps in the upper 20s to low 30s as you head out the door. It’s still breezy S 7-17 mph, and feels colder for sure and the afternoon warm up will be slow going. We should get into the upper 30s to near 40 degrees through the mid afternoon and even warmer tonight as rain moves in. Some model data suggests scattered showers moving in through the mid to late afternoon, but we expect a bulk of the rain later this evening and overnight. Highs will race into the upper 40s tonight and we may have a few isolated thundershowers.

A morning wintry mix possible in our North Zone Thursday although most of us will be too warm and singing in the rain tomorrow morning. A cold front will pass through, so we hit our highs early and will stay in the upper 30s into the afternoon. The tail end of the moisture could bring a few snowflakes in the afternoon tomorrow but not much.

The weekend looks cool with temps in the 20s Friday with partly sunny skies, and some light snow moving in midday Saturday. We will be dry Sunday in the mid 30s and MLK Jr. Day Monday will be warming to near 40 degrees with rain late. We’ll keep you posted.  You can stay ahead of the cold, snow, and rain with the Local4Casters app and take the weather with you.
