Metro Detroit weather: A cool Sunday evening after record-breaking warmth

Temps in the 40s

Best Groundhog Day ever, Motown!

We had a record high temperature of 53 degrees under blue skies in Detroit and Southeast Michigan. The old record from 1973 was 52 degrees. Sunday evening and night will remain milder than average and dry. Monday will have higher than average temps, again. We are back to more winter-like readings mid-week.

Sunday evening will be cool under fair skies. Temperatures will be near 40°F. It remains dry going to and from restaurants and activities at dinner time.

Sunday night will be partly cloudy to mostly clear and chilly. Temperatures return to the low 30s after midnight.

Monday will have some more sunshine and relative mildness. Afternoon temperatures will be near 45°F.

A new area of low pressure arrives, Tuesday. It will be warm enough during the day to have rain and cold enough at night to have snow mix with that rain. Daytime temperatures will be in the upper 30s.

Wednesday will have scattered snow showers, and it will be colder. Temperatures will be in the low 30s all day.

Thursday will be cloudy and chilly with scattered flurries. Highs will be in the mid 30s.
