Showers fade Tuesday ahead of a mid-week warmup in Metro Detroit

Temps rising Tuesday through the weekend

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Tuesday morning!

Early morning showers are surrounding Metro Detroit with most of the moisture falling south and east of Detroit as we get going today. Skies are mostly cloudy with temperatures starting in the middle 50s.

A couple of nuisance showers may slow your roll. You can give our 4Warn weather app radar a quick look before you hit the road. It will show you where the showers are and which direction they are headed.

The rain will not be the big weather story today, as this slow moving storm will exit our area today.

Today’s sunrise is at 7:11 a.m.

We will hang on to shower chances a little longer on the extreme east side of Metro Detroit, especially those of you in Southern Ontario, today. The skies will take some time to clear out completely, but we will get some breaks in the clouds later this morning into the afternoon.

The very back side of this storm will try to throw one more wave of showers at us this afternoon, but they will dry up across Northern Lower Michigan and we will only really see clouds from that wave.

Our high temps will beat yesterday, but we will get stuck in the low-to-middle 70s at best. Skies will get back into the partly sunny range with lighter winds moving WSW to WNW at 5-13 mph.

Tonight’s sunset is at 7:46 p.m.

We have a real treat coming at us in the middle of this week through the weekend, which is the last week of summer here in 2022.

Fall officially arrives next Thursday, so let us enjoy a little warm up.

Warming up this week

We will have morning temps in the middle-to-upper 50s early Wednesday, with high temperatures in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees under mostly sunny skies.

We will be living in that same kind of air on Thursday and Friday, with just a few more clouds around, which will keep temperatures from really taking off. Highs on both days will stay near 80 degrees with a few neighborhoods heading into the lower 80s. Conditions will be dry.

Nice auto show weekend ... with some rain?

The weekend is looking absolutely beautiful for the start of the North American International Auto Show in Downtown Detroit. There are venues both inside and out, so the pressure is on once again.

It looks fabulous on Saturday, with warmer temps in the middle 80s and just a touch of added humidity.

Sunday is a little bit of a question mark, as one computer model shows a few rain and thunderstorms coming our way in the late afternoon. There is not enough model agreement to lock into rain on Sunday, and it is just far enough away to know that many things can change. Right now, let’s focus on a warm and dry Sunday with sun and clouds and mid-80s. We will keep you posted on any changes as we get closer.

There is a better shot for showers on Monday of next week, according to more than one computer model. Highs still look to be in the neighborhood of 80 degrees with a chance for scattered showers.
