Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

Tuesday’s wild weather is quickly moving east and out of Metro Detroit. We’re tracking Metro Detroit power outages among DTE Energy customers right here.

Clouds loom overhead with just a few isolated sprinkles or light showers possible early this morning. Other than that, temps are slowly dropping into the 50s to low 60s, following a strong cold front that blew through last night.

Not only are temps down today, but the humidity will become much more pleasant for the next two or three days. Skies will be partly sunny this morning, and pretty much all day.

Today’s sunrise was at 7:14 a.m.

We still have a full week before fall officially arrives next Wednesday, the Autumnal Equinox, but it will feel a little bit like fall outside today: Highs will hang in the mid 70s, and winds moving NNW at 5-12 mph will create some coming and going lake enhanced cloud cover.

We may even get a few drips or sprinkles in the early afternoon, but it will be a mostly dry day. Yom Kippur begins this evening as the Day of Atonement, and it will be a nice and quiet night ahead. Skies will gradually clear as the sun sets and the winds really relax.

Today’s sunset is at 7:42 p.m.

Sunshine and humidity ahead

Thursday may be the best weather day of the week! It will be not too hot, not too cool, but just right!

Metro Detroit morning temps will be in the low and mid 50s on Thursday. Afternoon sunshine will help highs hit the mid and upper 70s, with a spotty 80 degrees in a few neighborhoods. The heat and humidity is on deck and will be on the rise for our last official weekend of summer.

Friday will feature sunshine with just a hint of additional heat and humidity, making it feel like summer again. Friday highs will be in the upper 70s in the North Zone, and the low-to-mid 80s around most of Metro Detroit.

Rain chance Saturday, muggy Sunday

There’s a minor disturbance that will move north to south on Saturday, and that could mean a few scattered showers in the late afternoon, especially in our North Zone. Don’t cancel your plans, because showers will be scattered, not ongoing all day long. Most of us likely won’t see much wet weather, but it’s worth a mention.

Sunday will be warm and muggy with highs in the mid 80s, but feeling closer to 90 degrees.

Next week preview

There is a chance for a few afternoon showers Monday late afternoon and/or evening into Tuesday of next week. We should see low 80s at least through Tuesday and before fall arrives Wednesday of next week.
