Metro Detroit weather: Quiet, partly sunny summer-like Wednesday

Wednesday highs in upper 70s, maybe higher

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

We have more clouds rolling through Metro Detroit this morning with temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s as you head out in mostly dry conditions.

A complex of storms over Wisconsin is dying out, but it’s bringing a little added moisture into our area as it passes by. So, we cannot rule out a few showers as a result, especially in our North Zone and over toward the Flint area. Most of us won’t likely see a drop as our dry air will win this battle.

Today’s sunrise was at 6:16 a.m.

We will have to battle through some cloud cover all day today around Metro Detroit as the wet weather stays away. There is a chance that we’ll see a little mid or late afternoon clearing, which would really help us warm up again. The clouds will be the main player for our forecast highs, with only partly sunny skies bringing highs into the upper 70s. We’ll get closer to 80 degrees or warmer if we can thin out those clouds later today.

The winds will be a little more gentle, moving SE at 5-12 mph without any big gusts. Today will be a quiet and nice summer-like day.

Today’s sunset is at 8:44 p.m.

Beautiful end to the week

All signs in the forecast models point to more and more sunshine on tap for Thursday and Friday, making the end of the work and school week the warmest part of our week.

So, look for highs in the low 80s on Thursday, and just slightly cooler highs on Friday.

It looks like there will be some late day clouds filling in Friday ahead of some active Saturday weather, but it will stay dry Friday with highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees with mostly sunny skies becoming partly sunny.

Wet weekend ahead

The weekend will be our next decent shot at some Spring showers and storms.

Saturday now looks to be the worst of it, with afternoon rain and thunderstorms forming with the heat of the day and the approach of a frontal boundary. There could be some gusty storms forming, and we could even see a few strong-to-severe storms forming in the mid-to-late afternoon.

Highs will be in the neighborhood of 80 degrees as those storms move through.

Sunday no longer looks like the wetter of our weekend days, but there will be some scattered rain and thundershowers. Highs will stay in the mid-70s with mainly afternoon showers. Then, we’ll be cooling off into next week.

We’ll keep you posted with more specifics on the weekend rain chances as we get closer.

Next week preview

Some morning rain is possible Monday, with highs closer to 70 degrees. Temps will cool down into the upper 60s by Tuesday.
