Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday morning!

Temperatures are on the comfortable side as we get up and going. This work week beings in the 50s with a few spots flirting with the 40s, and others flirting with 60°F. Skies are mostly clear and will be mostly clear through the morning. We are seeing some patchy fog around Metro Detroit in the usual spots, so be careful. Enjoy the sunshine and clouds today -- an August day without heavy heat or humidity.

Today’s sunrise was at 6:28 a.m.

After morning sunshine, clouds will begin to develop as we warm up into the mid and upper 70s by this afternoon. We don’t expect any rain with the clouds forming. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds with winds moving NNW at 5-10 mph. Metro Detroit averages highs in the mid 80s in early august, but we may not see that in the next week. Get ready for a comfy, and mostly dry, week ahead.

Monday’s sunset is at 8:51 p.m.

Mostly dry week ahead

Tuesday will start in the 50s and then warm again into the upper 70s with mostly sunshine. We may see a few neighborhoods hit 80F Tuesday, and we will definitely see slightly warmer temps each day as we move forward this week.

Wednesday highs will be in the low 80s with a nice mix of sun and clouds -- and that may be the exact formula for our weather on Thursday and Friday, too. We can expect increasing high clouds Friday ahead of a possible rain maker coming in this weekend.

Weekend rain possible

The computer models show a disturbance bringing mainly morning rain showers in on Saturday. The rain is expected to clear cup a bit during the day, with highs in the low to maybe mid 80s.

There’s another, and possibly stronger, disturbance taking aim at southeast lower Michigan and southern Ontario for Sunday morning, and those showers may linger longer during the day.
