DETROIT – Good Thursday morning!
Turn around, don’t drown. That’s the National Weather Service’s motto when it comes to flooding rains. And it still applies this Thursday morning around Metro Detroit, as rain showers continue to actively move through our area. Watch out for any standing water as you head out this morning.
Temps are in the low and mid 50s early this morning. There are several flood warnings issued for the Rouge, Clinton, and Huron rivers, so do your best to continue to avoid those areas. Keep your umbrella handy today and dress for the 50s all day long on this cool and damp Thursday.
There’s a high wind warning for counties hugging Lake Huron, so watch out for those wicked winds, loose power lines and power outages near intersections as you drive.
Today’s sunrise is at 7:22 a.m.
Scattered rain showers will be coming and going today as skies stay mostly cloudy and the winds shift NE to SW moving at 5-15 mph, and gusting to 20 mph. The rain will be a little lighter today compared to Tuesday and Wednesday rains, which brought 2-5 inches of rain to SE lower Michigan and Southern Ontario.
We will get some breaks in the rain today, but highs will likely not make it out of the upper 50s. Bundle up!
Today’s sunset is at 7:28 p.m.
Rain showers will taper off late Thursday night, and we will warm up eventually -- but we will have to keep waiting for that sunshine.
Brightening up Friday
Skies will be mostly cloudy Friday through the midday, and then decreasing clouds could bring us into mostly sunshine by late afternoon. Highs will get back into the upper 60s and low 70s with a steady breeze moving WSW at 5-15 mph, gusting to 23 mph.
Rainy Saturday, then more sunshine
Saturday showers will be off and on, and we need to plan for scattered wet weather from early morning through the mid-afternoon. Highs will likely not get out of the upper 60s with partly sunny skies and breezes that won’t quit.
Sunday will be the beginning of a sunny stretch that is beyond well deserved. Mostly sunny skies will help morning lows in the 40s rebound into the low 70s by Sunday afternoon.
We will enjoy sunshine most of next week with those crisp overnights in the 40s to low 50s, and super comfortable afternoons in the low and mid 70s.
