Clouds roll in Tuesday ahead of midweek rain chances in Metro Detroit

Tuesday to be party cloudy with highs in low 80s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Tuesday afternoon!

There is an active pattern of rain and storms down to our south in the Ohio Valley, and that will hold for the next couple of days, if not longer. We are getting some debris clouds from that moisture, though we don’t have any threat of rain showers here today.

Unfortunately, the clouds will rob us of more sunshine, making for partly cloudy to partly sunny skies around Metro Detroit on this Tuesday. Highs will be in the lower 80s, and a light breeze will move SSW at 5-10 mph.

Humidity will not be an issue today, so get out there and enjoy what will be a very pleasurable weather day.

Tonight’s sunset is at 8:59 p.m.

Wet weather chances Wednesday

Wednesday is our next shot at showers with a cold front dropping from the north, while we also tap into a bit more of that moisture to our south.

Clouds will keep pumping in, but we may not see any rain or thundershowers until the mid-to-late afternoon on Wednesday. which is when that cold front will be in our vicinity.

Some of our computer model data dries out just about all of the showers as they move ahead of that front, north to south, in the mid-to-late afternoon.

With some sun breaks in the clouds, highs will try to head into the mid-80s. The humidity will bring us into the sweaty and uncomfortable zone. While we encourage you to keep your outdoor plans in place, stay tuned for updates and keep an eye on the Local4Casters weather app radar.

Some rain possible Thursday

Thursday can be best described as “meh.”

All signs point to more clouds looming across SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario after we enjoy a little bit of morning sunshine. A few too many clouds will appear in the afternoon with enough moisture and the chance for a few spotty, light rain and thundershowers.

We’ll have a warming wind moving WSW at 5-15 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times. It will not become doom and gloom, as highs hit the low-to-middle 80s.

This is the first day of the Rocket Mortgage Classic at the Detroit Golf Club. They will be good to go to play with a slight chance for a brief delay.

Those pesky clouds may very well bleed into Friday morning before we finally get back into some decent sunshine.

Pleasant weekend ahead

We’ll see sun and clouds Friday afternoon with lower humidity and highs near 80 degrees.

It couldn’t look any better for both of our weekend days, or for the final two rounds of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds, low humidity, and highs in the low-to-mid 80s. Sunday will be the warmer and muggier of the weekend days, and a classic last day of July here in Metro Detroit.
