Metro Detroit weather: Cold front approaches after near-record temperatures

Temperatures reach 60s in late November

DETROIT – Tuesday's record high temperature is 68 degrees, set back in 1990, and we got very close to that mark. Southwest winds, gusting over 30 mph, along with plenty of sun, are helping boost temperatures.

Clouds will increase Tuesday evening ahead of a cold front. It's possible we might see a few raindrops, but most of us will stay dry. Once the front passes, we will clear out and temperatures will drop. We'll wake up in the low to mid-30s.

Wednesday will feature plenty of sun, but temperatures won't be nearly as warm. Highs will get close to normal in the mid-40s.

Thursday will bring our best shot at rain, but it won’t be much. Look for some midday showers after a few morning peeks of sun.

From Friday through the weekend we’ll see more sun than clouds. Temperatures will be slightly above normal for early December. Dry conditions will last through that three-day stretch as well.

The pattern will start to change by the middle of next week. See what impact that has in our 10-day forecast.
