MICHIGAN WEATHER RADAR
Possible thunderstorms could develop ahead of weekend in Southeast Michigan: What to know
It’s been a lovely day thus far, but mid-afternoon satellite imagery shows some agitated cloud cover across Lake Michigan into northeast Illinois, moving eastward. High-resolution computer models suggest that a small area of showers or possibly even a thunderstorm could develop and cross southern Michigan through the early evening. Most of us will remain dry, but those south of 8 Mile Road may want to monitor the Local4Casters weather app’s real-time radar if you have outdoor plans early this evening.
Here’s when you can expect rain as temperatures warm up around Metro Detroit
Rain moved in right on schedule Wednesday (May 18), and it will continue unabated until tonight. Temperatures overnight will remain nearly steady in the low-to-mid-50s (10 to 12 degrees Celsius – but cooler in the Thumb), with light east to southeast winds early tonight flipping around and blowing from the west later Wednesday.

A pleasant evening is on tap, but it is a touch cooler, so a light jacket isn’t a bad idea for those who are going to be out. Temperatures eventually drop into the upper 40s overnight, with more clouds gathering before daybreak Wednesday.
