Showers, storms to hit on-and-off throughout Wednesday in Metro Detroit

Rain expected in the morning and afternoon Wednesday

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday afternoon!

Scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the day today. Storms, mostly targeting our North Zone, moved through this morning.

Skies will be partly sunny at times, with highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Then, a cold front will stall out and bring another round of rain and thunderstorms in the mid-to-late afternoon. These showers and storms should not be severe, though we will certainly let you know if anything changes.

Today’s sunset is at 9:10 p.m.

Comfortable temps to end week

The cold front will eventually blow through here and bring cooler and drier air to all of SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario for Thursday and Friday.

We’ll have comfortable sleeping weather early Thursday with temps in the 50s around here. Highs will hover near 80 degrees again Thursday with wall-to-wall sunshine and low humidity.

Friday will be an identical kind of day, with slightly warmer afternoon temps in the lower 80s.

Rain chances this weekend

There is a slight change to the weekend forecast, bringing back the chance for showers on Sunday.

Saturday will be a nice day with an increase in temperatures, humidity and clouds. Skies will go from mostly sunny to partly sunny with highs in the mid-80s.

Sunday rain and thundershowers look more and more likely, although the computer models are not in sync when it comes to timing. We should prepare for scattered rain and thunder both in the morning, and then again in the afternoon with highs in the mid-80s.

One of the long range computer models shows the heaviest rain coming in late Sunday into Monday morning, keeping us mostly dry during the day on Sunday, too. Stay tuned!
