Hot, sunny Memorial Day for Metro Detroit ahead of shower chances this week

Monday highs in upper 80s, low 90s for some

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday and Memorial Day!

The skies over most of Pure Michigan will be very bright and mostly clear most of this Memorial Day. We will see a few clouds forming with the heat of the day, which is unavoidable.

Our high temperatures will hit the mid-to-upper 80s, with winds picking up SSW at 7-15 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times. The winds will help some neighborhoods hit 90 degrees later today. The record high in Detroit is 93 degrees on this day, so it will be close.

The humidity won’t be a big factor for any heat concerns today. Let’s not take anything for granted, though, and stay hydrated, apply sunscreen and reapply sunscreen.

Alright, enough on that. Get out there and enjoy a wonderful weather on this day dedicated to honoring U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the armed forces.

Today’s sunset is at 9:02 p.m.

More 90-degree weather

There will be a few tough rounds of stormy weather today over the High Plains and Great Plains, where severe weather is very likely. That threat for severe storms hits Wisconsin and Western Michigan late on Tuesday, with a cold front sweeping through the middle of the country.

The storms late Tuesday afternoon and evening should stay to our west -- but there is a slight risk for severe storms just over the horizon.

We will see mostly sunny skies become only partly sunny skies late in the day Tuesday. The heat will builds one last day, with highs near 90 degrees. Detroit’s record high for the last day of May is 95 degrees.

It looks like the strong line of storms will depend on the heat of the day, and will move into our region overnight Tuesday into early Wednesday. The computer models show limited moisture leftover as the cold front approaches, dwindling our chances for a good lawn watering.

Shower chances Wednesday, Thursday

Wednesday morning shower chances are iffy, but it does appear that the cold front trying to move through will stall out due to a stubborn storm spinning just off the Atlantic coast. So, shower chances will be best on our Hump Day here in Metro Detroit, but we should not rely on seeing too much rain.

We expect mostly to partly sunny skies Wednesday, and temps in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. A steady breeze will move WNW at 7-15 mph.

We could use some rain as we head into June this Wednesday. Then, the computer models show a pretty dry stretch of weather for us over the next week to 10 days.

Thursday will be a nice blend of sun and clouds with a slight chance for a quick afternoon shower or two. Those shower chances are weak with a weak disturbance passing over the Great Lakes Region.

High temperatures will be in the low to middle 70s on Thursday.

Friday will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs slowly starting to warm again into the middle or upper 70s. The weekend ahead will be nice, and it looks dry for now with mid-70s to near 80-degree highs both days, and a chance for showers late Sunday or next Monday.
