Metro Detroit weather: Beautiful conditions to end earlier than expected

Rain arrives Friday

By Ben Bailey - Chief Meteorologist

DETROIT - Our run of beautiful weather is coming to an end quicker than expected. 

There won't be many changes Thursday night. Skies will be mainly clear, with lows near 50 degrees. That might still seem cool to some, but it's actually above normal for this time of year.

Rain is accelerating toward us, which means some of us will get wet Friday. Even though most of the rain will show up after sunset, a quick disturbance will move through midday, giving us a chance of rain. A shower isn't out of the question in the afternoon and early evening, but most of us will stay dry.

Then, from 8 p.m. Friday through sunrise Saturday, rain becomes likely. A thunderstorm is possible, but it's a slight chance.

Since the whole system is moving in quicker, that means it will leave quicker, too. We should wake up dry Saturday morning and even see a decent amount of sunshine through the day. A brief sprinkle is possible Sunday morning, mainly in the West and North zones, but those 70s will be long gone. 

The low driving our weekend cold front will hang around in northern Michigan through the early part of the week, so we'll see waves rotating around that low bring periodic chances of light rain Monday through Wednesday. Rain will be light, and most of those days will be dry.

Temperatures will stay at or below normal through most of next week.
