Metro Detroit weather: Great spring-like day with shower chances

DETROIT – We’re in for another great Spring-like day starting cool but less chilly than yesterday morning.

You can expect temps in the middle 40s to low 50s as you head out and about under mostly clear skies and dry roads. We will see some hazy sunshine throughout your Wednesday with highs heading into the low 70s with winds SW 5-12 mph and a possible shower or two in the late afternoon and/or early evening.

Don’t cancel your plans as a cool front drags down from the north and will bring afternoon showers to our North Zone. The moisture will be hard to come by and the front may dry out as it moves through the heart of Metro Detroit. Still, a few scattered showers are possible between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. where you might get a brief delay.

Thursday forecast

We will see some sunshine Thursday blending with more cloud cover, but it’s enough sun to warm us into the low or mid 70s and mostly dry most of the day. Rain and scattered thundershowers move in after dinner and maybe after sunset and showers will come and go into the overnight.

Friday forecast

Friday morning will start wet for many, mainly areas south of M-59.

After lunch Friday, a little sun but mostly cloudy and temps struggling in the mid 60s. With a few hours of sunlight, we may hit those low 70s again but the clouds may take a while to break. More rain chances late Friday into early Saturday.

Weekend weather

The weekend may start and end a little wet, but it’s no weekend washout. Saturday morning showers will be scattered and fairly light and then we will see milky sun to mostly cloudy skies most of the day. Saturday highs will not get out of the 60s due to clouds and a little rain coming and going through the morning.

I believe most of the day will be dry and that should be the case again Sunday. But, Sunday rain chances are a bit stronger as temps warm back up into the upper 60s to low 70s bringing scattered rain and thundershowers in the late afternoon and evening. We may see lingering showers Monday morning but again, it will taper off leaving part of the day dry.
