Metro Detroit weather: Heavy rain, downpours expected Monday night


DETROIT – We should stay dry for much of the evening commute.  But a large push of rain arrives after sunset.  That will last until midnight for much of us except the North Zone, where rain will linger for a couple more hours.  Temperatures will remain steady in the low 50s overnight.

Tuesday other than a couple sprinkles, especially early, most of the day will be cloudy, windy and cool.  High temperatures will arrive early, in the low-to-mid 50s.  Temperatures will fall into the mid-to-upper 40s by afternoon.  Plus gusty winds will send wind chills into the 30s before the sun goes down.

Wednesday starts dry and cool.  Showers develop in the second half of the day.  Highs return to the mid 50s.

Thursday will be another soaker.  Expect rain for much of the day.  Highs will only reach the mid-and-upper 40s.

Opening Day Friday may not be a picnic.  As of now, the back edge of that rain looks to hang out right around the Detroit River.  Even if we stay dry, expect cloudy skies and a first pitch temperature around 40 degrees.

On the bright side, the weekend looks nice.  Check out the 10 Day Forecast for more on that.
