Metro Detroit weather update: April 5, 2021 afternoon, evening forecast

DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for April 5, 2021 afternoon and evening.

Local forecast

Unsettled weather this week

  • A large upper-level low over Nova Scotia is keeping our weather very unsettled most of this week. This large upper-level low is not moving much this week, acting to block the flow of the atmosphere. This blocking is keeping a stationary boundary near us, and that’s serving as a focus for rain chances most of this week.
  • It looks like we’ll be mainly dry through Wednesday, but a few showers will be in the area and we can’t rule out a few making their way into SE MI.
  • Better rain chances return Thursday and into the weekend.

Staying above normal

  • Normal high this time of the year is in the middle 50s. But we’re looking to see highs in the 70s most of this week and the 60s this weekend.
