GF Default - Metro Detroit weather forecast for Nov. 19, 2019 -- morning update

It’s a rough go out there this morning due to patchy dense fog and some freezing drizzle, so be very careful out there on the roads.

Morning temperatures are in the upper 20s to low 30s and that’s why we have the threat of some icy spots from freezing drizzle through about 8 a.m., and then the fog and drizzle will be less threatening as temperatures warm above freezing. Skies stay cloudy all day with occasional drizzle and fog still in play and highs only in the low 40s with light winds SW 5 mph.

Wednesday forecast

Wednesday will be a little warmer, but we’ll struggle with morning fog again and slightly warmer morning lows in the low to mid 30s early tomorrow. We should see a little sunshine battle through our mostly cloudy skies and highs should land in the mid 40s.

There is a rain maker heading our way but it has stalled a little bit and should arrive midday Thursday. Wednesday will be a dry day for all of SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario.

Thursday forecast

Rain moves in Thursday with a warm front which should bring our high temps to 50°F or warmer. Model data suggests that most of the rain will fall across Western Michigan with lighter rains here starting late morning or early afternoon and continuing through the afternoon and evening.

Friday forecast

A few showers linger early Friday, and then temps start to tumble Friday afternoon back down through the 40s and ending in the upper 30s by the end of the day.

The weekend looks cool in the 20s early with highs only 35-40°F both weekend days.

There is a slight chance for a light wintry mix on Saturday, but we’ll focus more on that when we are confident in the potential for rain mixing with some light snow this weekend.
