Metro Detroit weather: When to expect rain this week

It’s still a little soupy out there this Wednesday morning with patchy fog around Metro Detroit and temps in the low to mid 30s as you head out.

Temperatures should stay just warm enough to keep that snow melt from refreezing but the roads are a little damp so take it easy out there. It will stay mostly cloudy all day today with highs in the mid 40s and the winds will stay light W 5-10 mph keeping wind chills even with temperatures.

Warmer air keeps moving in overnight into Thursday, and we’re tracking moisture moving in with the warmer air.

Thursday forecast

We start your Thursday dry and with a little filtered sunshine under mostly cloudy skies and morning lows in the mid 30s. The rain will move in midday or into the afternoon, lasting through the evening drive tomorrow which will slow you down.

The good news is, we should hit the low 50s before the rain arrives as the warming winds pick up S 10-20 mph gusting 20-30 mph at times. The rain should be pretty steady through the afternoon but it’s on the lighter side and we can say goodbye to all of the snow currently on the ground.

Friday forecast

Showers end 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 as we tap into sunshine through your Friday afternoon. It’s back to the cool stuff this weekend with 20s early and highs only 38-43°F both weekend days.

Weekend outlook

Model data is split on where the weekend storm will move with at least one model bringing a light rain/snow mix into Metro Detroit Saturday afternoon or evening. We’ll keep an eye on it because there’s a good chance that system stays south of the Ohio Border. There’s another storm coming in Tuesday night and/or Wednesday of next week that could create problems for Thanksgiving travel all across Pure Michigan. Right now it looks like mainly rain and should be gone by the time America’s Thanksgiving Parade gets started. Again, we’ll keep you posted.
