Metro Detroit weather: Wet start, windy finish

DETROIT – An advancing cold front will cross the area later this morning, taking the rain with it, but also bringing in some wind for the rest of the day, as a southwest wind at 15 to 25 mph with gusts between 30 and 40 mph takes hold.

Highs in the mid to upper 60s (19-20 degrees Celsius) will occur midday, as cold air rushing in begins dropping our temperatures starting early to mid-afternoon.  From a timing standpoint, we’ll start the day with showers and a few thunderstorms, and see the rain end move out from late morning toward noon as skies become partly cloudy. 

Cold air aloft moving behind the front will then destabilize our atmosphere, increase our late afternoon cloud cover, and also trigger some scattered late afternoon showers.

Today’s sunrise is at 6:28 a.m., and today’s sunset is at 8:33 p.m.

Breezy and much colder tonight, with scattered showers still possible.  Lows in the low 40s (5-6 degrees Celsius).

Continued breezy and chilly on Tuesday, with scattered showers.  Highs only in the low 50s (11 degrees Celsius).

Mostly cloudy Tuesday night, with lows in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees (4 degrees Celsius).

Partly cloudy on Wednesday, with highs in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees (15-16 degrees Celsius).

Partly cloudy Wednesday night, with lows in the low 40s (5 degrees Celsius).

Mostly cloudy on Thursday, with a chance of rain.  Highs in the mid 50s (13 degrees Celsius).

Mostly cloudy Thursday night with showers possible.  Lows in the low 40s (5 degrees Celsius).

Mostly cloudy and breezy on Friday, with showers still possible.  Highs in the upper 50s (14-15 degrees Celsius).

It now appears that a small shower chance may hang into part of Saturday, with breezy highs in the mid 50s (12 degrees Celsius), but Sunday looks better, with partly cloudy skies, and highs in the mid 50s (13 degrees Celsius).
