Rainy Wednesday with cooler temps that will last through the week in SE Michigan

Light, moderate showers Wednesday, but nothing severe

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

Grab that umbrella as you get ready to get going as scattered rain showers are now taking shape this morning. Yes, it just so happens to be one of those days bringing big changes.

Temperatures will start in the 50s to near 60 degrees, and they won’t budge much. We’ll have cloudy skies and more rounds of light-to-moderate rain moving in from the Southwest this morning.

An umbrella and a light jacket should do the trick.

Today’s sunrise is at 7:59 a.m.

There is a very slow cold front moving west to east across Pure Michigan today, and we’re tracking more showers both ahead of and along the front. We can expect a few moderate-intensity rain showers late in the morning and early this afternoon here in Metro Detroit.

Our temperatures will hold pretty steady in the middle and upper 50s through the early afternoon before a more rapid decrease occurs as that cold front moves east of us. The winds will pick up, moving SW/NW at 7-17 mph, gusting to 20-30 mph at times. We could get some peak wind gusts of 30-35 mph around any of those more intense showers midday, but nothing severe. We likely won’t even see any lightning with all of the activity coming and going.

Tonight’s sunset is at 6:35 p.m.

Keeping cool

The cooler air will keep pouring into SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario as we head into Thursday with much better sky conditions. That means morning lows will be in the lower and middle 30s under partly cloudy skies.

We should expect a really nice mix of sun and clouds, favoring more sunshine than clouds for sure, on Thursday. High temperatures will hold in the lower and middle 50s with a cool breeze moving NNE at 5-13 mph.

Friday will still be cool and not quite as bright as Thursday.

A stream of clouds will roll across our skies early Friday as we awake to temps in the middle and upper 30s and start with only partly sunny skies. High temps will be very close to our seasonal average in the upper 50s, but we might get closer to 60 degrees as we try to eliminate some of those clouds by the middle or later afternoon hours. It will be jacket weather for those Friday night high school football games, and it will be dry.

Mostly dry weekend

This weekend should be mostly dry with minor concerns for rain on Sunday.

Things look fabulous Saturday, especially for the big rivalry game in Ann Arbor as Michigan State University travels to the University of Michigan. We’ll have a nice and sunny day with highs in the 50s to lower 60s Saturday, falling gently back into the 50s during that game, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

Sunday will see more clouds. Right now, we are keeping conditions dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs again in those upper 50s to near 60 degrees.

That rain threat may be holding off until Monday, which is Halloween -- and that’s the last thing we want.

Right now, some computer model data is pointing to light showers and 60 degrees, but confidence is still low on any game-changing rain for our spooky holiday, so stay tuned.
