Expect rain, above average temps in Metro Detroit to end 2022, ring in 2023

Rain arrives late Thursday, will last through Sunday

4Warn WeatherGood Wednesday morning!

After more clouds and continued cold temperatures, with just a touch of sunshine for some of us yesterday, we will see a little more sunshine as we enter the middle of the extended holiday week.

For your Wednesday, high pressure moving off to the east of the region will bring in some sunshine and begin our warming trend to above average temperatures, after days and days of being “in the freezer”.

Expect a mixture of sunshine and clouds throughout our Wednesday. High temperatures will be heading to near average, as we make it into the upper 30s in the afternoon.

Our sunshine will be short lived. Cloud cover will increase through the evening and overnight hours, as our next system moves into the region. The clouds will stick around as we start to get moisture heading toward the region ahead of our next system.

Low temperatures will stay above freezing for the first time in at least a few days, only dropping into the middle 30s heading into Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

Warm front moves in Thursday

The winds will also continue to be breezy throughout the next few days, too. A low-level jet in the upper levels of the atmosphere will set up shop across Southeastern Michigan at the end of the week. This will help keep wind gusts upward of 25 mph in the forecast through Friday.

We will watch a low-pressure system develop and move toward the region at the end of the week. A warm front will also move toward the region as we go from Thursday night and into Friday, and this will increase our chances of rain for the entire region -- and it will help to bring warmer temperatures into the area, as well.

High temperatures will be above average in the upper 40s Thursday night, and then will be right around 50 degrees on Friday.

Rain all New Year’s weekend

Right now, most of the major forecast models have the approaching cold front slowing, and almost stalling out, as it works its way toward us this week. This will keep us on the active side of the forecast for the end of the week and into the weekend. Meaning, expect rain to continue throughout your Friday and Saturday and Sunday, with scattered showers on Sunday.

High temperatures will be cooler and back into the middle 40s for both Saturday and Sunday, so this will be a chilly rainfall.

We will keep the cloud cover in the forecast for the beginning of next week. High temperatures will remain in the middle 40s before we get another shot of warmer temperatures moving into the region, which will bring another chance of rain, as well.

High temperatures in the middle 40s on Monday will head into the 50s on Tuesday, with more rain arriving for most everyone.
