Metro Detroit weather forecast: Warmer Tuesday afternoon

DETROIT – One of our models calls for a bit more sun in the afternoon and if we can hang on to partly cloudy skies past lunch, it may get us into the mid 30s.

Those odds are low, so prepare for mostly cloudy skies and on the cooler side of normal or average.

Wednesday warmup

Temps slowly rise overnight with more cloud cover and we will likely wake up Wednesday in the 30s. Skies become partly to mostly sunny through the first half of Valentine's Day or longer and that means highs should surge into the low or mid 40s as winds pick up a bit SSW 5-15 mph.

Clouds will be filling in and there is a slight chance for a few rain showers or areas of drizzle after dinner toward midnight.

Thursday light rain

There's a better chance for hit or miss light rain showers on Thursday with temps staying mild. A second wave of warmer air comes in, so even with clouds and rain chances, highs will get well into the mid 40s.

It will cool a bit on Friday and Saturday, so right now it looks as if we may be dealing with a light wintry mix early Friday before we dry out. Cooler 30s Friday and Saturday, but we will be back into the 40s by Sunday and Monday.
