Cloud cover remains as rain falls Wednesday in metro Detroit — here’s what to expect
4 weather warning – Tuesday was a very dreary day across the region, with plenty of cloud cover and rain for everyone. However, we are starting to add drier weather to the forecast as we look ahead over the next few days.
We will keep some scattered rain in the forecast during the evening and overnight hours tonight, with the rain tapering off as we work through the late evening hours. Overnight lows drop into the 30s by the time you wake up Wednesday morning.
Although rain is out of the forecast on Wednesday, we will keep cloud cover in the forecast for most of the day, and it will be a bit breezy throughout the day.
Wind speeds can reach 20 mph during much of the day. High temperatures will be cooler, reaching lows to the mid 40s by Wednesday afternoon.
After that, we expect the clouds to clear overnight Wednesday into early Thursday morning, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Let’s say you’re planning to run the S3 Turkey Trot or join us in the American Thanksgiving Parade on Thursday in downtown Detroit. In this case, Mother Nature adds dry weather to the weather forecast throughout the day. But it will be cold.
We’ll start out in the 30s if you’re racing early Thursday morning but only warm into the upper 40s Thursday afternoon. With high winds expected to continue, wind chills will likely remain in the 30s and lower 40s as you head into the afternoon.
Dry weather will continue into the weekend on Friday and into the first part of the weekend on Saturday, with a little more cloud cover in the area on Saturday.
But all eyes are on the weather forecast at the end of the weekend and into early next week, with snow in the forecast.
Right now, the forecast data is agreeing better, but we still have some time to watch this system as it heads our way. Right now, it looks like light snow will move into the area throughout Sunday and continue into part of Monday as well.
High temperatures will drop well below average, reaching the upper 30s through the end of the weekend and into early next week, with overnight lows in the 20s. This would be supportive of snow, being the type of precipitation with this system, allowing cold air to move into the upper levels of the atmosphere.
It’s too early to tell if this snow will accumulate, but we’ll keep an eye on that as we work through the holiday and look forward to the weekend.
