Metro Detroit weather forecast: The mercury is climbing!


As expected, temperatures by mid-afternoon rose into the low 40s (6 degrees Celsius) across most of the area which, combined with the sunshine, sure made for a spectacular Valentine’s Day!  

Clouds will rapidly increase this evening, with fog and areas of drizzle (and even a couple of very light showers) developing.  Lows only dropping into the mid to upper 30s (3 degrees Celsius), which is well above freezing.  South wind at 7 to 12 mph.

Mostly cloudy with some fog on Thursday, and we should be mostly dry through mid-afternoon.  Then rain moves into the area, so it’ll likely be a wet afternoon rush hour, and you know what that means…a slow crawl home.  On the bright side, highs should reach the mid to upper 40s (8 to 9 degrees Celsius).  Southwest wind at 7 to 12 mph.

Thursday’s sunrise is at 7:30 a.m., and Thursday’s sunset is at 6:06 p.m.

We’ll have some steady rain Thursday evening, and that should end around midnight as a cold front passes by.  There’s the small chance for a light snow shower later at night.  Lows in the upper 20s (-2 degrees Celsius) means that there could be some icy areas late Thursday night into Friday morning, so watch out for this.
