Showers will be on-and-off Tuesday, rest of the week in Metro Detroit

Rain Tuesday morning, more expected in evening

4Warn Weather – The winds have died down, making it slightly more comfortable today. We may get a few periods of milky sunshine, but we should expect mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the low and middle 40s. Light winds will move NE at 5-10 mph.

A stationary front has been drenching the Ohio River Valley with rain, and that front is going to be on the move later today to the north and east, closer and closer to SE Michigan and Southern Ontario.

We have another shot at mostly rain later this evening.

Tonight’s sunset is at 5:01 p.m.

Scattered light rain showers and isolated, light snow will be more of a miss than a direct hit late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Still, it is a better shot of showers than what we’ll see earlier in the day.

That may mean we’ll have some slick roads during your Wednesday morning commute. The clouds will linger with a few more breaks, which will help our high temps land closer to 50 degrees. Light winds will, again, move N at 5-10 mph.

Drier Thursday

The next weather maker will be delayed, leaving us high and dry on Thursday here in Metro Detroit. There really won’t be too much different in our weather Thursday, with partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies, low temperatures in the middle 30s and highs in the upper 40s once again.

A wintry mix will be approaching as we head into the evening hours Thursday, but we won’t likely see any wet weather until after midnight or early Friday.

Rainy, snowy Friday

We will have light rain and snow showers falling around most of Metro Detroit Friday with temps in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees. Computer models show that areas north of M-59 are less likely to see much of anything falling, but stay tuned and we will keep you posted as we get closer.

The weekend right now is looking dry around here with some light snow flying around the Eastern Great Lakes and Southern Ontario just off to our north and east. There is a chance for a glancing blow with some flurries or light snow on the east side Saturday. Most of the weekend should be mostly dry with highs around 40 degrees both days.
