Metro Detroit weather: Warming temps, rain on the way

Rain and wind expected Wednesday

DETROIT – Clouds will fill in through the mid and late afternoon ahead of a rainmaker on the way.

We will see a few lighter, isolated showers this evening but the heavier rain and thundershowers move in after midnight.

Wednesday forecast

Wednesday is a very wet start, but it’s rain and not snow or ice. Be careful traveling before 9 or 10 a.m. due to the potential of a half inch to an inch of rain and hydroplaning. Highs will hit the mid 50s midday and then a sharp drop in temps as the winds begin to crank.

We will see scattered rain and snow showers through the afternoon and winds gusting 30-45 mph at times which means we may have sporadic power outages. Wow, what a day! Be careful.

Wind advisory

  • The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for Genesess, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties from 9 a.m. Wednesday until 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Thanksgiving Day forecast

It’s going to be dry for America’s Thanksgiving Parade with morning temps in the low to mid 30s feeling like teens to about 20°F with a pesky morning breeze WNW 10-25 mph. Skies become partly sunny on Thanksgiving and the breezes settle down a bit with Metro Detroit highs around 40°F.

Friday, weekend forecast

It’s chilly for Black Friday shopping starting in the 20s, and ending in the low 40s while we stay dry.

A wintry mix will turn to cold rain on Saturday during the Ohio State vs. Michigan game in Ann Arbor. Rough stuff but it’s primarily rain with temps in the upper 30s to low 40s. Some lighter wintry mix lingers into Sunday, too.
