Metro Detroit weather forecast: Slight Risk for severe weather Tuesday

Rain is on its way

DETROIT – We will see scattered afternoon showers and some could be on the strong side and winds South 8-18 mph.

We are under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather later today and especially tonight. A cold front will be moving into our warmer, muggy, unstable air and we will see several thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds, hail, lightning, and isolated tornadoes.

The main threat will be this evening and late tonight, but we cannot rule out a few strong afternoon storms too. Keep your eyes to the skies and don’t forget your best weather tool, the Local4Casters app.

Wednesday forecast

We will see showers around in the early morning hours after a stormy overnight, but most of your Wednesday will be dry. Morning clouds will thin out and move out leading to mostly sunny skies into the afternoon. But there will be cooler air moving in all day with a wind WNW 8-18 mph and highs in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.

Rest of the week forecast

Most of Metro Detroit will be locked into the cool but nice mornings in the 40s and low 50s Thursday and Friday, and highs both days from mid 60s to near 70 degrees. Both days look dry although we have a rain chance this weekend. Right now, model data suggests showers around dinner time Saturday into Sunday morning.

We hope that most of the daylight hours this weekend will be dry with well placed or timed rain chances. We may see more showers Monday too.
