Some rain, lots of sun

A warm front moves into SE Michigan on Wednesday and will bring in more clouds and a few showers before the warm and muggy stuff settles in. Scattered showers both in the morning and later in the afternoon are possible Wednesday, with highs in the mid to upper 70s -- but 80s are possible if we get some afternoon sun mixing in.

Thursday and Friday will be a taste of summer in mid-May here in Metro Detroit. High temps will be in the mid to upper 80s, flirting with 90 degrees Thursday through Sunday, nearing some local record highs.

The big variable will be cloud cover possibly limiting temps on Friday and Saturday. Thursday looks great with mostly sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity adds another layer Friday and Saturday as we approach 90 degrees, feeling even warmer.

We’ll be on the lookout for shower chances, especially Sunday and Monday.
