Metro Detroit weather: Becoming brighter but chilly today

Highs in the mid, upper 40s

DETROIT – We will have a good supply of sunshine through your Friday morning and a nice balance of sun and clouds this afternoon with highs around 49F as winds WNW 10-25 will gust 25-33 mph.

That will also keep wind chills in the 30s at best most of the day.


The Easter Weekend starts out really nice around Metro Detroit with a chilly start, like today, in the lower 30s although the wind won't be as pesky. Saturday sunshine will give way to high clouds in the afternoon and highs in the mid 50s. There is a chance for rain after 9 or 10pm Saturday. Easter Egg Hunts need to be planned with this in mind.

Sunday will start wet in the early morning hours, and then a dry break mid morning into the early or mid afternoon with highs near 60F. Then, more rain and isolated thunder moves in during the later afternoon lasting through the night.

Monday will start wet, and then dry out as we get through the afternoon. Highs will hit the low to mid 50s and then the cooler winds start moving in. We may be in a Wind Advisory Monday and Tuesday of next week as Metro Detroit winds will be in the 30-50 mph range after the storms have moved through. Tuesday and Thursday look dry next week, but Wednesday will likely be a little wet. Stay tuned.
