DETROIT – We get a brief break from the heat on Wednesday as temps dip down in the morning into the upper 50s to low 60s.
Highs will struggle to hit 80 degrees, and mid 70s is a good bet for Wednesday highs for most of Metro Detroit.
A slow-moving warm front will slide back in and bring a few rain chances during the day, but it looks fairly weak with drizzle or a light showers here and there.
More wet weather arrives Wednesday night into early Thursday.
Rest of the week forecast
Metro Detroit will start wet on Thursday with perhaps our best rain chance of the week. Showers will be heavier west and as the rain moves south to north, the Tri Cities will see the heaviest rain around. Showers will decrease and begin to shut off into the mid and late afternoon as highs race toward 80 degrees again. If we break from the rain and clouds early enough, mid 80s and muggy conditions will prevail.
Another cool front blows through Friday, bringing some midday shower chances. We should clear out and become comfortably cool Friday evening for high school football games or any outdoor activities. Highs should hit 80 degrees Friday and then fall back into the weekend.
The Autumnal Equinox, or the start of fall, is Saturday and Mother Nature will respond. Expect a dry weekend with highs in the 60s and low 70s.
