Metro Detroit Climate: Rinse and repeat

DETROIT – I can only say “Wow”. You know when it’s so humid that whatever comes up leads to heavy rainfall. And it did it on Tuesday. I got 0.79 ″ of beautiful rain on my house in Farmington Hills and one of my Twitter followers, Mandy in Canton, got 1.5 inches. However, other followers had big news for me. Sue in Manchester got only one lead. “Dynaman2” in Milford didn’t get a drop. John said it “poured buckets” in Columbiaville, but “hardly anything” a few miles southeast. Lionsontheclock in Wixom didn’t get a drop, and Doug in Richmond got nothing either. Meanwhile, a National Weather Service cooperative weather observer two miles east of Ypsilanti received nearly two inches of rain! So it was really a day of “have and have nothing”.

As for our Wednesday, it is again a warm and humid start with clouds of fog, but in the early afternoon a few showers and storms will appear again. Like Tuesday, some of us won’t get a drop so let’s hope that some of those who didn’t get anything on Tuesday get some rain today. Sticky highs will again reach the mid-80s (30 degrees Celsius) with light and changeable winds.


Today’s sunrise is at 5:57 a.m. and today’s sunset is at 9:09 p.m.

Any persistent shower or storm that evening will end quickly, leaving us partly cloudy with possibly fog overnight. Lows in the upper 60s.

Let’s hope that we will have some clearing at sunrise on Thursday, because the sun here in southeast Michigan will rise partially eclipsed by the moon! I’ve summarized everything you need to know in a short (one minute) video in the Local4Casters app. If you’re one of the few who doesn’t have the nation’s best weather app, what are you waiting for? It’s free and you can find it on the App Store by searching for “WDIV”. Just open the app and scroll down … you will see the video right there.

The rest of Thursday appears to be partly cloudy and I think most of us will have a dry day. Highs in the mid-80s (29 to 30 degrees Celsius).

Partly cloudy Thursday night, with lows in the mid-1960s (18 to 19 degrees Celsius).
