Metro Detroit weather: Warm front to bring rain Sunday afternoon

Sunday highs in mid 30s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Sunday afternoon.

The rest of the day today remains cloudy with precipitation on the way.

A wintry mix is possible north of M-59/Hall Road, but not for long. This afternoon will be cloudy and chilly. Temperatures will rise to the middle 30s.

The whole region will have chilly rain showers develop and arrive with some of the heaviest, steadiest rain falling at dinnertime. A rumble of thunder would not be surprising.

Cloudy skies will produce rain as it develops and arrives from the West-Southwest. We expect the rain to arrive after the Detroit Lions kick off against the Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field. Umbrellas will be needed for the rest of the day and into the evening.

Today’s sunset is at 5:01 p.m.

Sunday evening will have the heaviest rain, especially between 6 p.m.-9 p.m. It will be wet, and temperatures will keep rising with the arrival of more warm air from the South. Temperatures will rise through the 40s to near 50 degrees.

The rain will leave and become more scattered Sunday night. It will be chillier with lows in the low and middle 30s.

More cold, some snow coming

Monday will be chilly and blustery. Under partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies, sustained wind speeds will be between 20 mph and 35 mph with higher gusts. It will be chilly with afternoon temperatures near 40 degrees.

Scattered snow showers are possible late Tuesday, with highs near 30 degrees.

Wednesday morning has a chance of snow. The afternoon will be chilly with highs in the low 30s.

Thursday will be partly sunny and cold. Daytime temperatures will be in the middle 30s.
