Tracking midweek rain chances as temps trend down in Metro Detroit

Monday stays dry with highs near 80

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITHappy Monday!

A cold front late Sunday was the spark for showers and storms that have not completely sailed out of our area. Skies will not clear out entirely, but our temperatures and humidity will be trending in a much more comfortable direction today.

Conditions are dry as you head out this morning into temps in the low-to-mid 60s.

Today’s sunrise was at 6:19 a.m.

You will notice a different feel in the air today. The humidity will be present a little bit in the morning, but not as much in the afternoon, with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Light winds will move WNW at 5-12 mph.

The skies will not be very sunny for very long today, yet clouds won’t completely cover the sky, making it partly cloudy to partly sunny. We’ll have dry weather all day today after a weekend where we had showers both days.

Tonight’s sunset is at 9 p.m.

Tuesday would be the pick day of the week (until you get a look at what is coming later this week and weekend).

We’ll have a nice mix of sun and clouds around Metro Detroit Tuesday with morning temps in the comfy 50s. Highs will be warming into the low 80s in the afternoon, and that sun will be with us through the late afternoon while the humidity stays on the low side.

Tracking rain Wednesday

We will see an increase of clouds on Wednesday, though rain chances are still up in the air. You can expect a dry morning with scattered rain, and thundershowers moving through in the afternoon and evening.

We have a couple of computer models that show quite a fade in the rain chances as they move across the state west to east on Wednesday. Unfortunately, not everyone will get showers late Wednesday. We will keep you posted as we get more data and get closer.

Highs should hit the low-to-middle 80s with a midweek spike in humidity, too.

Rain possible Thursday

Thursday will be another iffy kind of weather day here in SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario with a few spotty showers possible.

Storms and most of the wet weather will be moving south of us all week, but Thursday may be a slightly different story. It will be cloudy from those storms south of us, with just enough moisture in the skies to produce a few scattered rain showers.

Do not cancel any plans yet, because these showers don’t look bad at all. We will see beautiful weather for most of the four-day Rocket Mortgage Classic at the Detroit Golf Club, which kicks off Thursday.

Friday through Sunday look perfect with sun and clouds, and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s through the weekend.
