Metro Detroit weather: Mild temperatures, rainmaker on its way

Looking ahead to Thanksgiving, Black Friday

DETROIT – For a Monday, it’s not to shabby out there in Metro Detroit.

Our hazy sunshine will become milky sunshine as high clouds move back over Metro Detroit this afternoon, and that may be enough of a sun filter to keep us from 50°F today. It will be close.

The winds are trying to warm us SSW 5-15 gusting 15-25 mph and that does make it feel a few degrees cooler.

Tuesday forecast

Tuesday looks gorgeous as well as we wake up with temperatures in the mid 30s and mostly sunny skies through the first half of tomorrow. Highs should hit 50°F and clouds will again fill in throughout the mid to late afternoon ahead of a rainmaker on the way. So you can expect scattered rain showers and isolated thunder late, late Tuesday and a soaking start to your Wednesday.

Wednesday forecast

Wednesday is a huge travel day, and it’s our wettest day of the week around SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario. The good news is, it’s rain and not snow but enough rain through the morning to create pooling and ponding or hydroplaning on the roads.

Winds will be problematic too S 15-30 mph gusting 35-45 mph during the afternoon and evening. After a wet morning, it’s only scattered afternoon showers in the gusty winds and a switch to a wintry mix through the evening and part of the overnight.

Thanksgiving Day forecast

Don’t worry! It’s dry for America’s Thanksgiving Parade with morning temps in the mid 30s feeling closer to 20°F with a pesky morning breeze W 10-20 mph. Skies become partly sunny on Thanksgiving and breezy with highs around 40°F.

It’s chilly for Black Friday shopping and a wintry mix is expected on Saturday.
