Sit back and unwind: Big warm up on the way for Metro Detroit

80s debut this weekend

It's going to feel more like summer later this week and weekend around Metro Detroit.

It seems we've been stuck in spring misery as of late, somewhere between 50 and 60 degrees, with a lot of rain. And more rain.

Well, the rain isn't going away, but temperatures are ready for a boost. Here's a look at the next seven days: (View the 10-day here)

Here's the forecast for the next few days from Brandon Roux:

Wednesday forecast

Wednesday starts dry, but some showers will try to sneak in later in the day. We should see some morning sun with temps in the mid to upper 40s to start and high clouds filling in toward lunch time.

Shower chances through the afternoon hours tomorrow won’t last too long and you should be able to get those after school and evening outdoor plans in without much trouble.

Highs should be in the upper 60s to low 70s and the higher range will depend on the rain timing and duration. I’d expect an hour or two of lighter showers through the mid afternoon and that’s about it.

Thursday forecast

Much of SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario will get back into some sunshine Thursday which is sandwiched between two systems. It’s a weak system and shower chance Wednesday, and Thursday night a slightly stronger band of rain and thundershowers will move in. This should be after dinner and dusk Thursday into Friday morning.  

So with sun to some high clouds, highs should hit the upper 60s to maybe low 70s again.  

Friday forecast

Thursday night rain will slow you down Friday morning during the commute as rain showers linger. We may have a little wet weather through the mid morning and then partly sunny and mild with Friday highs around 70 degrees.

Weekend outlook

Weekend temps are in the 70s with at least one model hinting at 80s possible Sunday. We will likely see mostly dry conditions Saturday and better shower chance for scattered rain and thunder Sunday.
