Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday morning, Metro Detroit!

A few scattered morning showers around Metro Detroit are keeping roadways a little damp as you head out early on this holiday. Temperatures are in the upper 50s to low 60s, with some areas of clearing skies.

Those widely scattered showers and our skies will continue to clear as we get closer to sunrise. Showers are fading fast this morning and we are set for a mostly dry Monday.

Today’s sunrise is at 7:04 a.m.

Happy Labor Day! It’s going to be a beauty of a Monday, and there will be no weather obstacles to your plans today.

There will be mostly sunshine on this holiday, with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. A nice breeze will pick up later this morning into the afternoon, moving W at 5-15 mph, and gusting at 17-22 mph -- so, there may be a bit of a chop out there on the lakes today if you’re planning a day on the boat.

Today’s sunset is at 7:58 p.m.

Severe storm threat Tuesday

Tuesday will bring tricky weather to all of Michigan, especially later in the afternoon and evening.

Metro Detroit will see a brief spike in temps and humidity Tuesday with gusty, warming winds. There will be a little bit of sunshine, and that wind moving SW at 10-25 mph, gusting to 35 mph, will help highs hit the mid 80s -- though it will feel even warmer with the anticipated muggy air.

Our heat and humidity will meet up with a cold front, and timing is everything. The Storm Prediction Center has all of Michigan in a “marginal risk” category for severe weather Tuesday, and it looks like the western and northwestern regions of lower Michigan will get into stronger storms in the afternoon and early evening, with damaging winds, or worse, possible. Then, the line of storms should move into SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario through Tuesday evening and early overnight.

We will keep a close eye on this decent severe weather threat and keep you posted, but be prepared for action late in the day tomorrow. Right now, the biggest threat is damaging winds, but the SPC hasn’t ruled out hail and isolated tornadoes across Michigan late Tuesday. Stay tuned!

Clearing up for the rest of the week

We will bounce back with wonderful weather Wednesday, as that heat and humidity will move out and leave us in the mid-to-upper 70s once again, with morning clouds and early morning showers possible. But we will clear out and get back into sunshine through the morning and into Wednesday afternoon.

It will then be dry and comfortable the rest of the week, with 50s for lows and mid-to-upper 70s for highs Thursday and Friday. The weekend looks a little warmer near 80 degrees with sunshine ahead.
