Metro Detroit weather: Change in the air with some shower chances

Wednesday skies stay mostly cloudy, dry

It’s soupy and cloudy as you head out this morning with temps in the low 70s. We’ve had a few showers here and there overnight, but most of the roads are dry and skies will stay mostly cloudy and mostly dry -- but keep that umbrella handy. There is a cool front moving through, which will stall out near the Ohio border and will spark some showers today.

DETROIT – There is a cool front moving through, which will stall out near the Ohio border and will spark some showers today.

This cool front will eventually rid us of the dangerous heat and humidity, but it will first bring some showers through Metro Detroit. The frontal passage timing for showers is mainly late morning through the afternoon, with our South Zone seeing the best chance for lingering showers near the front as it stalls.

So it’s no washout today, and nothing severe is expected -- however, a few showers may produce lightning as they move through midday.

Wednesday highs will be in the lower 80s. Skies will be mostly cloudy, and the winds start WSW at 5-10 mph and will shift to the WNW late in the day as cooler and less humid air slowly moves in; we’ll feel that more tomorrow.

Wednesday’s sunset is at 9:14 p.m.

Cooling off a bit

Thursday through Saturday will be noticeably cooler with highs mainly in the upper 70s.

We will see partly sunny skies Thursday with a few stray showers riding in on the slightly cooler air moving into Metro Detroit. We don’t expect much rain Thursday, more hit or miss, and most of us will stay dry with partly sunny skies.

Friday and Saturday now look totally dry, which is more great news for Detroit’s Rocket Mortgage Classic! Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s and comfy, with mostly sunshine both days before some of that summer heat returns Sunday.

Our Fourth of July will be warming up into the mid or upper 80s, and an isolated pop-up shower is possible with the peak heat of the afternoon. We’ll keep an eye on this, so stay tuned!
