Metro Detroit weather: Breaking down rain chances for this weekend

Showers arrive Saturday, end by Sunday morning

Metro Detroit weather forecast April 23, 2021 -- 11 p.m. Update

DETROIT – We finally got temperatures back to seasonal norms, but can we keep it going for the weekend?

Rain invades

Rain will move in for part of our weekend, but expect dry conditions for Saturday morning.

Showers start inching into the South and West zones around lunchtime. Then, they’ll gradually spread northward through the early afternoon.

Showers become a bit more scattered by late evening and should wrap up completely by sunrise Sunday.

Then, we’ll remain dry for the rest of the weekend. Clouds will break for the second half of Sunday, as well, giving us some late sunshine.

High temperatures both days will finish around 60 degrees. That’s slightly lower than Friday’s number, but at least within spitting distance of average highs for late April.

Morning lows won’t be as chilly as they were earlier in the week. Both Saturday and Sunday mornings will begin around 40 degrees.

Finishing strong

Then, we roll into the last week of April. Temperatures will spike during the middle of the week, going from Monday’s highs in the low and mid-60s to near 80 degrees Tuesday, and still holding onto the 70s for both Wednesday and Thursday.

Our morning starts next week will be warmer than a lot of the high temperatures we had to endure this week.

Going into next weekend, there’s a bit of a cool-down, but only to near-normal highs as we welcome the month of May next Saturday.
