Rain, wintry mix faze out of Metro Detroit Tuesday, leading to drier conditions (for now)

Wet weather returns for weekend

4Warn WeatherGood Tuesday afternoon!

With a cold airmass in place, precipitation that rolled in late this morning into the early afternoon could be a bit of a mix or even wet snowflakes before changing over to rain midday.

Highs will only top out in the upper 40s, so it will feel a bit more like March than late April. Rain chances will diminish this evening.

Tonight’s sunset is at 8:26 p.m.

Clearing skies tonight will allow for temperatures to tumble back into the 30 with frost possible again on Wednesday morning.

Drier Wednesday, Thursday

Expect some cloud cover to build back in early Wednesday. Otherwise, it will be drier with a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday with highs about 10 degrees below average, in the low 50s.

We’ll have more sunshine and be a few degrees warmer on Thursday as we top out in the upper 50s.

Rain returns Friday

Rain chances will return Friday and will last through the weekend, as temperatures get a bit closer to seasonal averages.
