Metro Detroit weather: Dreary forecast between now and weekend

Temperatures cool as weekend approaches

DETROIT – Rain chances haven’t gone away, but we’ll see more dry time than wet this week. Temperatures are still cooling as Mother’s Day weekend approaches.

Drops around

We’re in a dreary, unsettled pattern that will take us into the weekend. Tuesday evening will be wet at times, especially along the east side.

Wednesday will be mainly dry, with plenty of clouds. A sprinkle isn’t out of the question.

Our best chance at sun is late Wednesday and early Thursday, but the chances are slim.

Thursday evening ushers in another system. Then, another round of wet weather arrives Friday afternoon.

Getting colder

Temperatures will fall a bit more before bottoming out Friday. Expect highs in the mid- to upper 50s to end the workweek.

Morning lows will be in the 30s for Friday and Saturday morning. We should stay above freezing everywhere to start Friday.

Saturday will see a larger range in temperatures, which might push some areas outside the Metro Zone close to 32 degrees.

Recovery starts Saturday afternoon, but the 70s and 80s aren’t in the cards.

Weekend changes

Mother’s Day was looking good, but now there are some big questions. It looks like we’ll be on the northern edge of plenty of Ohio Valley rain, and that will likely show up Sunday morning into the afternoon.

So as of now, the later the better for outdoor plans with mom.

Temperatures will be slightly milder, but still below normal for both Saturday and Sunday. Both days will feature highs in the mid-60s, but Sunday will have the milder start.
