Frosty conditions give way to dry weather through mid-week in Metro Detroit

Frost advisory lifts for Metro Detroit at 9 a.m. Monday

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday afternoon!

Monday afternoon skies will become partly cloudy into the later afternoon. High temperatures will be in the middle 60s with a light, but cool, breeze moving NE at 5-10 mph.

We should have mostly sunshine, or at least dry conditions, through the middle of the week, which means you will have to self-water if you are doing any fall planting or seeding.

Tonight’s sunset is at 7:11 p.m.

We will be right back at it with cool conditions Tuesday morning although a few extra clouds may keep that frost away. We should see lows staying in the upper 30s to low 40s with a few harmless clouds in the morning. Chalk it up to another great day here in SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario as we tap into more and more sunshine into the afternoon allowing highs to hit 70F or at least in the neighborhood. The winds are still light and cool NE/NW 5-10mph.

Wednesday should be another dry day with increasing clouds ahead of what we hope is our next rain maker coming Thursday. So, skies will go from partly cloudy to partly sunny with a warming wind WSW 5-12 mph and highs in the lower 70s. It may become even warmer depending on the timing of the advancing clouds. Rain showers may arrive as early as Thursday morning, but they should be just scattered showers around the area. A bigger disturbance rumbles through our skies from north to south in the afternoon bringing breezy conditions Thursday afternoon with rain showers and temps in the upper 60s to near 70F. We will see a dramatic drop in temps as a cool front moves through Metro Detroit late in the day.

Friday showers should fade in the morning hours leaving us with a mostly cloudy but mostly dry day. It will start feeling a little raw out there with morning temps in the 40s only warming into the low to middle 50s with gusty winds NW 10-20mph. Saturday will be chilly too with brighter conditions as morning 30s will warm into the middle to upper 50s. We need more rain, but it looks like more sun and 60s by Sunday.
