Metro Detroit weather: Mild and dry today, more rain tomorrow

Wednesday highs in low 70s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

We’re seeing mostly cloudy skies with temps in the upper 50s and low 60s as we get going this morning.

No wet weather is happening now, and we aren’t expecting any across SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario for most of the day.

Today’s sunrise was at 7:44 a.m.

We won’t get a ton of sunshine today, but we will see some sun with highs in the low-to-mid 70s once again. Skies will go from partly sunny to partly cloudy. Winds will remain a little lighter today, moving SW at 5-10 mph.

Although we don’t expect any wet weather today, showers will be chasing us overnight Wednesday night into Thursday and Friday, too. It looks like it will be pretty wet around here to end this work and school week.

Today’s sunset is at 6:54 p.m.

Showers on the way

Scattered rain and thundershowers will be coming and going starting early Thursday morning. We should see high temps in the mid 70s around here Thursday, following morning lows in the lower 60s.

We may see a few areas of slightly heavier rain and thunder on Thursday, with more waves of wet weather in the forecast for your Friday.

The rain is going to be a little touch-and-go on Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed Metro Detroit in a “marginal risk” for severe storms for Friday afternoon and evening. We should see some steady, or even heavy, downpours, and some gusty winds in the afternoon and evening. Highs will hit the low or mid 70s Friday.

Drying out this weekend

Showers will linger into early Saturday before we dry out.

Temps will tumble into the 50s and 60s on Saturday.

We will see a dry stretch after that with a cool, fall-like pattern setting up -- stay tuned!
