DETROITRain peters out Thursday afternoon

While the storms rolled out of our area this morning, that doesn’t mean we’re done with wet weather today. We will see isolated-to-scattered lighter showers into the early afternoon.

Winds will shift SW to NW at 5-15 mph later this afternoon, but the more pleasant air will hold off until tomorrow. Most of your afternoon will be on the drier side as we pick ourselves back up after this morning’s round of storms.

You can probably open those windows this evening as temps cool into the upper 50s to low 60s into early Friday.

Thursday’s sunset is at 8:55 p.m.

Weekend sunshine and rain

The pick day of this week is Friday!

We will have morning temps in the upper 50s and highs only in the mid-to-upper 70s on Friday, with mostly sunny skies and a nice breeze moving NW at 5-13 mph.

Saturday will be similar through the first half of the day, but expect an increase in clouds ahead of a rain maker that will bring a few showers to Metro Detroit Saturday night and Sunday morning.

We may not see 80 degrees or warmer all weekend.

Most of Saturday will be dry, and Sunday will dry out after the morning showers with highs in the upper 70s. Late Sunday shower chances exist, but we’re keeping the afternoon dry for now.
