Metro Detroit weather: Warm Monday kicks off tranquil weather week

Cold front may bring scattered rain, storms Monday afternoon

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday morning!

It’s a mostly cloudy and mild morning as we head back to work and back to school on this Monday.

Temperatures are very warm in the low to mid 60s, which is about 15-20 degrees cooler than it was yesterday morning, and with mostly cloudy skies, temps won’t likely change much as you head out and about. We should stay dry most of today, but a cold front later on may bring a few isolated showers and storms.

Today’s sunrise is at 7:26 a.m.

Skies will go from mostly cloudy to partly cloudy at times as highs head into the mid and upper 70s. A few of us may reach the lower 80s during the mid-afternoon. The warming winds will be a bit more gusty during the first half of our day, moving WSW at 7-17 mph, gusting at 17-23 mph.

A cold front will be moving across the state today and will set up across central lower Michigan later this afternoon, before moving south through Metro Detroit. That front may spark a few isolated rain and thundershowers between I-69 and I-94 as it moves north to south through our late afternoon and evening. We’ll keep an eye on everything.

Monday’s sunset is at 7:21 p.m.

Our weather will get pretty easy and tranquil for a while after we get through this cool front later today.

Easy weather week

Skies will clear overnight Monday and dip back down into the mid 50s as we head into Tuesday morning.

We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds Tuesday, but cooler highs only reaching the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds will move NNE at 5-10 mph.

We will see a ton of sun Wednesday through Friday, but highs will be in the mid 70s Wednesday, followed by upper 60s and low 70s Thursday and Friday.

Possible weekend rain

The weekend forecast is not yet totally clear, as shower chances are possible, according to some of our computer model data.

Right now, it looks mostly dry Saturday with highs in the low 70s (at best) with increasing clouds. Rain may arrive late Saturday into early Sunday, and may linger into the early afternoon.

Again, it’s too far out to fully expect a weekend washout, so we will keep an eye on everything and keep you posted as we get closer.
