DETROIT – Good Tuesday morning!
There are a few clouds around this morning, and we’ve seen enough clearing and temperatures comfortably dropping as a result. Most of our Metro Detroit suburbs start in the upper 50s, while areas closer to Downtown Detroit hover in the low 60s early this morning.
Like yesterday, there’s a chance for a few isolated showers this afternoon, so grab the umbrella if you plan on spending time outdoors later today.
Today’s sunrise was at 6:42 a.m.
Tuesday will be an awful lot like Monday across SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario.
Afternoon highs will be a mix of upper 70s and lower 80s with manageable mugginess. We’ll have a nice mix of sun and clouds with winds moving ENE at 5-12 mph, occasionally gusting to 15-20 mph.
There is a cold front to our north and a warm front to our south with a few showers squeezed in between. They’ll be riding the wind from east to west after 2 p.m. or 3 p.m., bringing chances for isolated showers.
But, also like yesterday, most of us won’t see a ton of moisture from the isolated showers. Still, keep an eye out across Metro Detroit later today for a random shower or two.
Tonight’s sunset is at 8:33 p.m.
Same formula Wednesday
Wouldn’t you know that Wednesday will be a near carbon copy of today, with just a hint of added humidity and warmth.
We will enjoy comfortable morning lows in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees, and afternoon highs in the lower 80s and feeling a degree or two warmer.
A few afternoon showers are not only possible, but will be a little more likely than they are on Tuesday. Scattered rain and thundershowers are possible Wednesday afternoon to early evening, but there’s no real guarantee of a free lawn watering. Count your blessings if you get any rain today or tomorrow.
Beautiful end to the week
Thursday and Friday look like absolute winners here in Metro Detroit. We’ll have more of those comfy overnight temps near 60 degrees, and afternoon highs in the middle 80s on both days. Skies will have a nice blend of sun and clouds, and the humidity will be tolerable.
Our next real decent shot at more widespread showers will be poorly timed and arrive this weekend.
Rain likely this weekend
Right now, the computer models are still in agreement and show scattered afternoon rain and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon, and again on Sunday afternoon.
Stay tuned as we get more data throughout the week before you cancel any outdoor plans.
But, with a warm and muggy start Saturday and a cold front sweeping by, we will see some scattered showers by mid-afternoon. Sunday’s shower and storm chances look to be more numerous and more widespread, mostly in the afternoon hours.
We should expect some lingering showers on Monday, too, before we dry out for a couple of days.
