Metro Detroit weather: Quiet but without sunshine

Next snow chance is next week

Clouds hold tough Wednesday night, with lows in the low 30s (0 degrees Celsius). North-northwest wind at 3 to 6 mph.

Some of you know that I’m a big Beatles fan, so I’ve been waiting and waiting to use the song title “Good Day Sunshine” to headline one of my weather articles.

And it appears that my wait will be so long that I had to modify things today.

From the standpoint of getting from Point A to Point B, we have dry roads this morning and no weather problems. So that makes it a good winter day. However, for those with cabin fever (officially called Seasonal Affective Disorder), I’m sorry that I don’t have any sunshine to help you out.

We are starting our day in the low to mid 30s (0 to 1 degree Celsius), and will only see a couple of degree Fahrenheit rise in temperatures by this afternoon. Wind will be light, and blowing from the northwest at 4 to 8 mph.

Clouds hold tough Wednesday night, with lows in the low 30s (0 degrees Celsius). North-northwest wind at 3 to 6 mph.

Cloudy once again on Thursday, with highs in the mid 30s (1 to 2 degrees Celsius).

Cloudy Thursday night, with lows in the mid 20s (-3 degrees Celsius).

Friday starts cloudy, but I think we’ll start seeing some breaks of sun developing by mid-to-late afternoon. Highs in the mid 30s (1 to 2 degrees Celsius).

Partly cloudy Friday night, with lows in the low 20s (-6 degrees Celsius).

Weekend update

Partly cloudy on Saturday -- this could be the day with the most sunshine in the next ten days, so grab a lounge chair and get ready for that. Highs in the mid 30s (1 to 2 degrees Celsius).

Partly cloudy Saturday night, with lows in the low 20s (-6 degrees Celsius).

Becoming mostly cloudy on Sunday -- sorry about that -- with highs in the low to mid 30s (0 to 1 degrees Celsius).

Next week

Our pattern of quiet but mostly cloudy weather continues until we have a snow shower chance next Friday. Highs generally holding in the mid 30s (1 to 2 degrees Celsius).
