DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for April 28, 2021 afternoon and evening.

Local Forecast

Rain/Storm Chances Rest of Today

  • As of 1:30 p.m, we are still south of the boundary, so we are watching the radar closely to see what else develops.
  • Chances exist mainly before 7 p.m., with the best chances in the south zone.
  • NOT EVERYONE sees much more this afternoon/evening… but if/when something does pop, small hail will be the biggest concern.

Rain Showers Thursday

  • Thursday is a soggy day with rain showers.
  • Rain totals will range from 1/10 inches to over 1/2 inches.
  • Higher totals further south near the state line.


  • Weekend doesn’t look too shabby.
  • Slight chance for rain later Saturday mainly in the north zone, but it looks like the better shot for rain returns Monday-Wednesday of next week.

Other Headlines

Daylight Over 14 Hours
