Metro Detroit weather: Head start on summer this weekend

Warm, muggy weather on way

DETROIT – Summer is still officially more than two weeks away, but we’ll get a big head start on that by the weekend.

On Tuesday night, any sprinkles will dry out by sunset. Clouds will start breaking up shortly after that. Temperatures will drop to the low 50s in most locations, but parts of our West and North Zones will end up in the mid- to upper 40s by daybreak.

Temperatures in the 70s will return for Wednesday. Sunshine will be along for the ride too. A light, cool northeast breeze will show up, keeping things slightly cooler than normal.

By Friday, we’ll be back to seasonal averages, with lows in the upper 50s and highs in the upper 70s. That’s also our only significant shot at rain until the middle of next week. Expect a few thunderstorms with the arrival of a cold front.

The front won’t be bringing any cooler temperatures. Temperatures will spike over the weekend, with highs in the mid-80s Saturday and upper 80s by Sunday. It will be a muggy two-day stretch as well.

We should hit the low 90s early next week, and once the heat arrives, it won’t be moving out anytime soon. Check out the toasty temps in our 10-day forecast.
