DETROIT – We will keep sunshine into the forecast in the morning hours on Sunday, with a little more cloud cover working in through the afternoon and into the evening.

It will be noticeably more humid as we had throughout the day. With that moisture moving in, I’m not going to rule out an isolated shower especially late afternoon into the evening hours.

But most everyone stays dry, do not cancel the plans. High temperature is heading for the upper 80s by the time you get to the afternoon, with heat index values also into the 80s and possibly the lower 90s.


As we work into our Monday, we will watch a cold front head into the region by Monday afternoon and into Monday evening.

This will bring the chance of showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures make it into the upper 80s by Monday afternoon, but when we factor the humidity it is going to feel just a tad bit warmer than that.

Some of the thunderstorms on Monday could be on the strong to severe side of things. The Storm Prediction Center has place the entire region under a Marginal Risk (1 out of 5) for severe weather on Monday as the front moves through. Damaging winds and hail will be the primary threats with thunderstorms that develop ahead of the cold front, but by no means is this a widespread severe weather threat.


That cold front presses on through the region as we work from Monday night overnight and early on Tuesday morning, so we will keep a chance of rain showers into the forecast for the first part of our Tuesday before a mixture of sunshine and clouds moves into the region. High temperatures are cooler behind the cold front only making it into the lower 80s by Tuesday afternoon.

Rest of week

High pressure builds back into the region for the second part of next week, so expect plenty of sunshine Wednesday through Friday. High temperatures remaining into the mid to upper 70s, and lower 80s with overnight lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s for the end of next week.
