Metro Detroit weather: Fog mixed with light rain Thursday night

Temperatures drop into 50s

By Ben Bailey - Chief Meteorologist

DETROIT - Fog and a few areas of drizzle will appear Thursday night. So far, visibilities haven't dropped enough to cause travel problems, but it's still possible. Temperatures will stay relatively steady until daybreak, with lows in the low 50s in most spots.

We'll hang on to the fog and low clouds through the morning, with gradual clearing expected through the afternoon. Highs will reach near 70 degrees.

The weekend will be mostly dry for the majority of the area, but the places that get rain should get a noticeable amount. North of M-59, rainfall might total 1-2 inches from late Friday night through early Sunday morning. The placement of the rain will bring a wide range in temperatures for Saturday. Check the 4ZONE Forecast page to see how warm your backyard will get.

The last of the rain will swing through early Sunday morning, during the start of the Detroit Free Press/Chemical Bank Marathon, unfortunately. But it won’t last long. Conditions should be dry by 10 a.m. Windy conditions will take over for the afternoon with gusts up to 40 mph. Highs will reach near 70 degrees.

Cooler temperatures are around the corner for next week. Check out the morning lows in our 10-day forecast, which shows some temperatures in the 30s in spots.
