Cold Tuesday, then back to the good stuff

DETROIT – Good Tuesday morning!

This cool track really gets on some people’s nerves, but stay tuned – the good stuff is just around the corner!

Tuesday sunrise was at 6:16 a.m.

We wake up in cool temperatures again, but at least the day starts as sunny as yesterday. Then, like yesterday, we will be partly to mostly cloudy for the afternoon and scattered showers will appear – but more of us will not see any than will. When particularly heavy showers emerge, some of us may see a repeat from last Friday where harmless pea-sized hail develops. As scattered as these showers are, the shower risk still persists. So keep an eye on our app’s real-time radar when you have plans for the outdoors.

It’s getting windy again today, with northwest winds of 10 to 15 mph adding some chill to the highs in the low to mid 50s. For perspective, today’s long-term average high is 69 degrees.


The sunset on Tuesday is at 8.44 p.m.

Tuesday evening mostly clears with lows in the lower to mid 30s. It is coldest in our typically coldest rural areas, where patchy frost is possible again.

After all, Mother Nature gives us a respite, as we will have mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies from Wednesday to possibly Sunday!

The highs will steadily rise: we will hit the lower to mid 60s on Wednesday, the upper 60s on Thursday and Friday, and the low 70s on the weekend. Overnight lows begin near 40 degrees on Thursday morning, mid-40s on Friday and Saturday mornings, and near 50 degrees on Sunday mornings.

You will find that I pulled the rain from Sunday’s forecast. Tuesday morning’s computer models suggest a slowdown in the next storm system, which will delay the chance of rain until Monday. Obviously we’re still six days off so I’ll have to monitor. But now all signs of a dry, mild weekend are encouraging!


Even if it was chilly outside, please remember that the sun’s rays are quite strong now. Temperature has absolutely nothing to do with the ability of unprotected skin to burn if exposed for too long. Be sure to wear sunscreen and a hat even if you’re only going to be out in the late morning or early afternoon sun for 30 to 60 minutes (less if you are fair skinned).

Remember: every sunburn you get increases your chances of developing skin cancer. And trust me, as someone who’s had cancer, I’m just saying that you don’t want to go that route.
