Warmer temps, sunshine expected through rest of week in Metro Detroit

Wednesday highs in mid-60s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Wednesday morning!

Our stretch of beautiful (for some -- I’ve received complaints) November weather continues.

Today’s sunrise is at 8:08 a.m.

Any early morning fog will dissipate as the morning progresses, leaving us with sunny skies and highs generally in the mid-60s. If any wind develops, it will probably be a southeast wind moving at 5 mph or less.

Tonight’s sunset is at 6:26 p.m.

Clear skies Wednesday evening will make for great stargazing, but fog should develop between midnight and dawn. I think this will be a more widespread fog that may even lift into a low cloud deck. Lows will be in the mid-40s.

Mild, warmer end to the week

Fog or low clouds early Thursday will once again dissipate through the morning, leaving us with a mostly sunny afternoon. Temps nudge a little higher, with highs generally in the upper 60s.

It will be mostly clear to partly cloudy Thursday night (this time I don’t expect much fog), with lows near 50 degrees.

Friday will be partly cloudy and even warmer, with highs in the low 70s. It will become mostly cloudy Friday night, with lows in the upper 50s.

Rain arrives Saturday

Yesterday’s computer models accelerated a cold front coming this weekend -- an optimistic change that suggested the rain accompanying it would fall overnight Saturday night.

Well, this morning’s computer models are saying the cold front is moving even faster, which means this weekend’s rain is coming sooner than originally expected.

At this point, I still feel that we’ll be dry Saturday morning, and possibly into the early afternoon. Shower chances will increase after that ... so, if Saturday is your day to tackle those leaves, plan on the first half of the day while it’s dry.

The wind will really pick up Saturday afternoon. It’ll still be warm, with highs near 70 degrees.

The cold front crosses the area Saturday night, and showers will end then. It’ll still be windy with lows in the upper 40s.

Sunday now looks to be mostly sunny, with highs in the low-to-mid 60s.
