Metro Detroit weather: Sunny Monday with afternoon shower, storm possible

Monday highs in low 70s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday morning!

We’re seeing some sunshine build in, but a spotty afternoon shower or isolated thunderstorm is still possible, mainly on the east side between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Highs should reach the low 70s today. It’ll become breezy, too, as WNW winds increase to 10-20 mph, with higher gusts.

Today’s sunset is at 8:49 p.m.

It will be mostly clear Monday night, with lows in the mid-to-upper-40s. West winds will diminish, and shift to northwest overnight.

Cooler Tuesday

Tuesday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-to-upper-60s. Clouds will increase Tuesday night, with lows in the mid-to-upper-40s.

The incoming clouds will prevent temperatures from dropping lower.

Warming up with some rain chances

It will be mostly cloudy with a chance of rain showers on Wednesday. Highs will be in the low-to-mid 60s. Wednesday night will become partly cloudy, with lows in the low-50s.

Thursday will be partly cloudy and warmer with highs in the mid-70s. It will be partly cloudy Thursday night, with lows in the low-60s.

A strong cold front will enter the Great Lakes region on Friday. If the front approaches in the late afternoon or early evening, as some computer models suggest, then strong storms would be possible.

Friday highs will be in the low-to-mid-80s.

Weekend preview

This coming weekend’s forecast is somewhat uncertain.

Right now, the majority of the computer models suggest that the Friday cold front will extend our rain chances into Saturday, but leave Sunday dry.

Temperatures will cool off, however, behind that front.

Highs Saturday may sneak into the upper-60s to near 70 degrees. Temps may only reach the low-to-mid-60s on Sunday. It’ll be breezy both days.

I do see some warming, however, as we head into the following week. Stay tuned!
