DETROIT - Cloudy but warmer on this Election Day as overcast skies greeted us early and will not be breaking up much today.

Radar returns showing showers south of Monroe will struggle to move into Metro Detroit and will likely dry up before they move in.

Still, there's a slight chance for a light shower in our far southern suburbs as well as parts of Southern Ontario. Highs today will be near 60 degrees with winds SSW 7-13 mph.

Rain chances increase a bit tonight with most of the rain chances north into the Thumb and our northern and western fringes. We will see a few scattered light showers early tomorrow, but again most will be outside of Metro Detroit.

Rain showers will increase and intensify into your Wednesday afternoon where more than a half inch of rain is expected for most of our viewing area.

Temps will be near 60 degrees early and cool a bit with the afternoon rain down into the low and mid 50s.

The breezes will pick up SW 10-20 mph with some stronger gusts. The rain should start to move out by about 8pm on Wednesday.

Other than a few straggler showers early Thursday, we will dry out and cool off. Look for a mix of sun and clouds and highs only in the upper 40s. Cool breezes will once again be blowing, but with a bit more of a bite.
