Chilly and becoming wetter Mother’s Day
Happy Mother’s Day and welcome to Sunday Motown.
Rain showers are gradually spreading over large parts of the region today. Then it gets drier and colder overnight. Sunshine returns tomorrow and Tuesday with slightly higher temperatures. It will feel more like spring by the end of this week.
Sunday afternoon is cloudy and cool. The clouds lower and thicken as the minutes and hours move forward. The rain is increasing in intensity, but is light compared to the downpours and thunderstorms south of the Michigan border (in Indiana, Ohio, and the Ohio Valley).
Cities and towns in our North Zone (areas north of M-59 / Hall Road) will be drier but cooler. It is cloudy in northern Oakland County, northern Macomb County, and from Flint via Lapeer to Port Huron to the north in The Thumb. Highs will be in the low and mid 40s.
The Tigers will have a hard time playing baseball (if there is a game) in rainy, cool conditions on Sunday afternoons. The first place is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. Be careful when driving on damp roads and sidewalks. Bundle up too, as it gets chilly with temperatures barely rising into the mid and upper 40s.
From Detroit via Ann Arbor south to the Michigan-Ohio border, it gets wetter and cooler. The maximum values are close to 50 degrees.
Sunday evening will be wet and cold as families prepare dinner, but the rain showers are slowly disappearing and weakening once the sun has set. As darkness falls, temperatures drop to the low 40s.
The sunset is at 8:42 p.m.
Sunday night is mostly cloudy before midnight and after that and at dawn it is mostly clear. It’s getting colder with night lows in the mid-30s.
Monday will be sunnier again with an increase in daytime temperatures. The maximum values are close to 60 degrees.
Tuesday and Wednesday are partly to mostly sunny and mild. The average high this time of year is in the upper 60s. Highs reach the low and mid 60s.
Thursday has a chance of showers with highs in the mid and upper 60s.
Friday will be brighter and just as warm as Thursday. The afternoon temperatures are in the upper 60s.
The sky is mostly sunny on Saturday with heights close to 70 degrees.
