Tracking shower chances in Metro Detroit as temps cool off some

Cold fronts bring some rain chances Wednesday

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

The cold front with the biggest threat for starting stronger storms is moving through Metro Detroit early this morning. The severe threat hardly exists for us without the heat of the day, but some scattered rain and isolated thundershowers are moving through the area this morning.

Keep the umbrella handy and know that though our shower chances will be on the weak side this morning, they’ll be slightly better later this afternoon.

The cold front is losing strength and a lot of the moisture along with it. Temperatures are in the upper 60s to low 70s, and will cool down just a little bit as this cold front passes through. Our high temps today will not compete with the summer heat of the last several days.

Today’s sunrise was at 6 a.m.

There will be some breaks in our mostly cloudy skies at times this morning.

There will be another cold front coming off of Lake Huron this afternoon, bringing another chance for a few rain and thundershowers to our area late morning into the early afternoon. After a shower or two slides through north to south, we will again see a partial clearing of the skies over Metro Detroit.

Highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Winds will shift SW to NW, moving at 7-15 mph.

We have been talking about a relatively dry forecast for our area most of the week and through the weekend, and that still looks to be the case here. These shower chances today very well may add to up to next to nothing as we start the month of June.

Today’s sunset is at 9:03 p.m.

Cloudy Thursday, maybe rain

After scattered rain and thundershowers overnight Wednesday and into Thursday, we will see more cloud cover than sunshine on Thursday. Cooler air pouring in from the north will help in the creation and transportation of clouds through Metro Detroit.

There is a stalled out frontal boundary hanging around the Great Lakes Region, and all of that adds up to a few spotty showers possible Thursday, mainly in the late morning or early afternoon. But those showers don’t look like much, so don’t cancel any outdoor plans.

High temperatures will only hit the upper 60s to low 70s Thursday under partly sunny skies. A more gentle wind will move NE/NW at 5-10 mph.

Mostly dry weekend

Friday is the start of some activity on Belle Isle! Friday looks to be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low 50s.

The Detroit Grand Prix races kick off on Saturday and Sunday, and the forecast looks favorable for racing fans.

As much as we could use some rain, it looks pretty quiet around Metro Detroit all weekend with sun and clouds coming and going.

Highs will hold steady in the lower 70s Saturday, with sunshine through the morning and increasing clouds by late afternoon.

Sunday will be another day in the low-to-mid 70s. We’ll have morning shower chances in our North Zone and limited sunshine through Metro Detroit most of the day. Most of us won’t see the threat of rain until late Sunday.

We have better rain chances next week starting with Monday afternoon showers and storms, followed by scattered rain and thundershowers on Tuesday.
