DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for May 16, 2022.

Rain/storm chances rest of Monday

  • After a few showers and storms this afternoon, we’re looking ahead to what should be a fairly quiet night.
  • Skies will be mainly clear, but it will be breezy with winds at times gusting over 20mph or even higher.
  • Temperatures will drop into the upper 40s, which is a touch below where we should be this time of the year.

Temperature roller coaster

  • We only top out in the 60s the next two days, but 80s return for a quick showing on Friday.
  • That is again followed by another cooldown to the 60s early next week.

Rain returns Wednesday

  • Next solid chance for rain comes Wednesday, as a system brushes by just to our south.
  • Not a wash-out, but we’ll see rain chances most of the day.

Late-week storms

  • Increasing confidence that the next chance for possibly strong storms comes later Friday into early Saturday.
  • Timing will almost certainly be adjusted in the coming days, but the consensus right now is that the second half of Friday is something to watch for!
  • We’ll have to keep a close eye on as some of these storms could be strong to severe
  • Some of this rain later Friday will even linger into Saturday morning as well.
