Metro Detroit weather: Mostly dry day, warmer air ahead

Wednesday highs in low 30s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITHappy Wednesday!

It will be mostly dry today with highs in the low 30s -- which is a slight warm up compared to yesterday, when we never made it out of the 20s.

Wednesday skies will stay mostly cloudy to partly sunny, and the winds are on the lighter side, moving SSW to WSW at 5-10 mph.

We will be gradually warming the next few days, but the cool air is still in place tonight, so watch out for icy spots on the roads from any refreezing into Thursday morning.

Today’s sunset is at 5:01 p.m.

More wet weather chances

We will wake up to temps in the low 20s again on Thursday, and then highs should be just shy of 40 degrees.

There is a weak disturbance in the skies moving through the Great Lakes region, and that will likely bring some widely scattered rain and snow showers on Thursday. But it should be more dry than wet.

We have a shot at hitting 50 degrees Friday and Saturday, but we also have a good chance of having wet weather on both days.

Look for a few afternoon rain showers Friday as Metro Detroit highs hit the upper 40s to possibly low 50s. Winds will move SSE at 5-15 mph.

Wet, warmer weekend

Saturday morning looks quite wet with rain showers hanging around for hours before we get a little mid-day break. Again, highs should be around 50 degrees or slightly warmer, with lighter rain chances in the afternoon.

Sunday is the better weekend day with sunshine returning and highs cooling down into the lower 40s.

Monday and Tuesday of next week look pretty nice and bright in the mid-to-upper 40s. A little wintry mix is possible mid-week next week.
