DETROIT – High temperatures are going to soar with a warming wind moving SE at 15 mph. We will end up in the low-to-mid 60s by late afternoon into the early evening. Enjoy the second half of your Hump Day!

Today’s sunset is at 7:57 p.m.

More rain showers arrive well after sunset here in Metro Detroit, so expect more wet conditions after 10 p.m. and overnight. That means we’ll have another sloppy morning drive Thursday with showers lingering into the early commute.

We will still have temps in the 50s through the morning hours, followed by a cool front and upper 40s for most of the afternoon. We’ll also have some nasty winds moving SW at 10-25 mph, gusting to 30-40 mph.

Rain showers will be spotty before 3 p.m. on Thursday, and then it’ll be mostly cloudy, breezy and dry in the later afternoon and evening.

More rain, snow possibly Friday

Friday morning hasn’t quite come into clear focus on the computer models, but it looks like there will be a decent chance for scattered rain and snow showers between 5 a.m.-9 a.m. Morning temps will be close to freezing. Friday afternoon high temps will settle in the middle 40s with a stiff wind moving NW at 10-20 mph.

Warmer weekend

Saturday looks nice after a chilly start near 30 degrees and more clouds in the morning than later in the day. Highs will hover around 50 degrees.

The winds will be much lighter to start the weekend.

There’s a slight chance again for a few rain and snow showers Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon brings us into the lower 50s.

Most of next week looks quite nice in the 50s and low 60s by Tuesday or Wednesday. A shot of colder air may hit us heading into next weekend, but let’s worry about that another day.
