Remnants of former Hurricane Irma will bring rain to Metro Detroit this week


DETROIT – Although Hurricane Irma is no longer a hurricane, it's still bringing rain to the Midwest.

The former hurricane will bring bands of rain to Metro Detroit this week. Here's the latest from Brandon Roux:

Our best chance at rain this week comes in a couple of light waves from more remnants of former Hurricane Irma. Wednesday rain chances start in the morning. Spotty showers throughout the day, even into early Thursday. Highs tomorrow will be in the low to mid 70s with slightly cooler temps during those showers.

We should wake Thursday with rain on radar, but most of it will be to our east. The best chance for morning showers will be for the east side of Metro Detroit and then a gradual clearing throughout the day.

Thursday highs will be impacted by the clouds clearing which is not certain yet when it comes to timing. Skies turn partly sunny midday or early afternoon and if we get a nice mix of sun and clouds, we’ll easily see mid 70s with warmer air on the horizon.

Highs will be near 80 degrees and dry Friday through Sunday.

You can keep an eye on radar here.
