DETROIT – Good Wednesday morning!
Wet weather is disappearing on Exact Track 4D Radar this morning as our Wednesday begins. Skies will remain mostly cloudy, though, with morning temperatures in the middle and upper 40s. Those temps will feel a tad cooler with a steady breeze moving NW at 10 mph.
I refuse to talk about wind chills yet, but you will want that fall jacket today. Our stretch of widely scattered morning showers is over, which means we will end September with a two-inch rain deficit.
Today’s sunrise is at 7:27 a.m.
There will be a few periods of nice blue skies and sunshine, but it won’t last too long, as most of our Wednesday will be spent under partly sunny skies.
Look for high temperatures to hit the lower 60s later this afternoon with that pesky cool breeze moving NNW at 7-14 mph, gusting to 20 mph at times.
The only real chance for a spotty, light shower or sprinkle would be on the extreme east side of our area and into Southern Ontario, coming off of Lake Huron mid-afternoon. Most of us won’t see another drop today.
Tonight’s sunset is at 7:20 p.m.
Get ready to be rewarded for your patience during this unusual cool stretch.
Sunshine and warmer temps
We will have cool and crisp mornings on Thursday and Friday, and nothing but sunshine throughout the end of our work and school week. Mostly sunny skies will help highs into the middle 60s or warmer on Thursday, followed by more sun Friday with highs closer to 70 degrees.
The winds will be nice and calm during this stretch, blowing off of the big lakes from the northeast.
Mild weekend ahead
The weekend forecast is becoming clearer as we get into the first days of October, and the news is all good.
Both Saturday and Sunday will be nearly identical with morning lows near 50 degrees, a nice mixture of sun and clouds, and high temperatures in the lower 70s. The breezes will pick up just a tick, especially on Sunday, when those winds shift from the ESE to the SW at 7-15 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times.
We need rain very badly as Detroit is about 7.5 inches behind in the annual precipitation tally, so we need to track some rain in here. The computer models don’t show anything really promising next week, but there is a chance for a few showers to move in on Tuesday and Wednesday. All we can do is keep an eye on it for you and keep you posted with any changes.
