DETROIT – Good Wednesday afternoon!
All will be quiet on the Michigan front during the early afternoon.
Highs will land between 84-87 degrees with another day of manageable mugginess. Light winds will move NW/SW at 5-10 mph.
There will be a weak disturbance moving over Central and Northern lower Michigan today, bringing a few scattered showers north of I-69 into the Saginaw Bay by mid-to-late afternoon. Most of us won’t get any showers, but if you are driving north later today, you might run into a little rain and an isolated rumble of thunder in the late afternoon and evening.
Tonight’s sunset is at 8:20 p.m.
Rain possible Thursday afternoon, evening
Thursday brings a better chance of rain to Metro Detroit, and it may be perfectly timed. That means we should get through most of the day on the dry side Thursday, with a small chance for a few rain and isolated thundershowers after 3 p.m. However, rain looks like a much better bet Thursday night and early Friday morning.
Partly cloudy skies will become partly sunny on Thursday as highs settle in the lower to middle 80s.
Calmer skies Friday
Some morning rain showers cannot be ruled out on Friday before we gradually get back into calmer skies and drier weather.
Skies will go from mostly cloudy in the morning to partly cloudy Friday afternoon with highs in the lower 80s. Clearing out late in the day Friday sets us up for a nice start to the weekend here in Metro Detroit.
Warming up this weekend
The weekend ahead -- the last weekend of August -- will be glorious weather wise.
We will see a nice blend of sun and clouds on Saturday with highs in the lower to middle 80s. Saturday will be less muggy than what is coming on Sunday.
Sunday will bring a shot at 90 degrees, if we can hang on to the sunshine throughout the afternoon. Temps and humidity take a big jump. We will likely see some puffy cumulus clouds forming with an isolated afternoon thunderstorm.
Monday brings another decent shot at showers to SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario, so stay tuned.
