Metro Detroit weather forecast: Chilly start with temps in the 40s

DETROIT – Another chilly start with Monday morning temps mainly in the low and mid 40s, but some of our rural suburbs once again flirting with the 30s in spots.

There is a little bit of patchy fog, but more and more sunshine or hazy sunshine to start your Monday. Temps will warm quickly and nicely after a coolish start as we get into the mid 70s in most Metro Detroit locations later today with the one exception of our 4 Zones -- our North Zone will see lower 70s as the winds SE 5-10 mph keep slightly cooler air blowing in from the big lakes. You can expect mostly sunshine most of the day with a few clouds forming as we warm this afternoon.

Highs should be in the neighborhood of 80 degrees the next couple of days. Tuesday starts in the upper 40s to low 50s, and then mostly sunny skies turning partly sunny with a high in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. More clouds forming Tuesday with the increase in heat and approaching showers and storms from the west.

Rain and isolated thundershowers will greet us first thing Wednesday morning which will likely slow down the Hump Day Drive to work and school in the morning. We will see some breaks and the warm air is pumping in as the winds pick up SW 5-15 mph, and more showers and storms are likely through the afternoon. In fact, some of the heavier and steadier showers will be Wednesday late afternoon into the evening hours.

More showers are expected early Thursday although most of Thursday looks dry right now. Showers and isolated storms return Friday and Saturday before the sun returns for Sunday.
