Wind and rain in the Friday forecast

Keep the umbrella handy and your eyes to the skies

By Brandon Roux - Meteorologist, Segment Reporter/Producer

DETROIT - Fog will be moving out as a warm front moves up from Indiana and Ohio after noon. But, that warm front will bring a bit of instability and scattered rain and thundershowers through the mid afternoon. Highs will climb into the mid 50s with winds picking up from the SW 7-15mph.

Next, and more concerning, is a Wind Advisory for all of SE Michigan starting at 3pm Friday.

This is ahead of and along a fast moving cold front swinging through in the late afternoon.

The cooler air rushing into Metro Detroit will make wind very gusty. We'll start with winds WSW 15-30 mph in the afternoon, and the best threat for damaging winds will come between 5pm and 8pm this evening. We will likely see minor tree and property damage and sporadic power outages tonight.

Saturday may begin with a few flurries or very light blowing snow showers in spots in the early morning tomorrow. Skies may not clear until the early afternoon which will keep temps down. Saturday highs will be in the mid to upper 40s with cool and breezy conditions as sunshine returns by early or mid afternoon. Winds WNW 15-25 mph during the morning and afternoon will become lighter through the evening.

Sunday looks like the better of the two weekend days back into the low or possibly mid 50s and plenty of sunshine.

We will let you know if there are any shifts in the forecast.
