Metro Detroit weather: More rain chances

DETROIT – We certainly don’t want rain on a weekend but, in this case, the free water Mother Nature provided (one-to-two inches in most areas) was SO needed, and really put a dent in our drought conditions.

The day ahead features more rain chances, but nothing as substantial as what we saw over the weekend. Most of us should start the day dry (but there will be a handful of showers around), and there’s a better chance for scattered showers and possibly even a thunderstorm by afternoon.

It appears that best rain coverage could end up being in the Thumb, but you know the rule: keep an eye on the Local4Casters App’s radar to stay ahead of the weather if you have outdoor plans.

Highs today near 80 degrees (27 degrees Celsius), but only mid 70s (24 to 25 degrees Celsius) in the Thumb. South wind at 10 to 20 mph, shifting to the north later in the day.

Today’s sunrise is at 6:29 a.m., and today’s sunset is at 8:49 p.m.

We still have the chance for a few showers Monday night, with lows in the low 60s (16 degrees Celsius). North wind at 8 to 12 mph.

Mostly cloudy on Tuesday with a few showers possible. Cooler highs in the mid 70s (24 to 25 degrees Celsius).
