Weekend rain possibilities, temperatures slowly recover

DETROIT – We’re on our way to warmth. It just might not be here as fast as we’d like.

We won’t be quite as cold when we walk out the door on Friday. At least we are free of snow!

However, temperatures will still be in the 30s. The highs reached the Friday afternoon in the mid-1950s, which was below normal in mid-April.

We’re going to gain a few degrees over the weekend. Unfortunately that will come with more clouds than sunshine and not a completely dry forecast.

We’re watching a low pressure trough that will rise north out of the Mississippi Valley by the weekend. While we expect this wave to weaken, it gives us just enough buoyancy to keep an eye out for a quick sprinkle.

The odds are a little better on Sunday than on Saturday, but most of us stay dry the whole time. If these sprinkles show up on Sunday, it’s more likely that late afternoon is well into the evening.

We’re starting with highs in the low 60s next week, but that might be the best we can do for the overall forecast.


Temperatures will drop again in the middle of next week. In fact, next Thursday could feel a lot like this Thursday, with highs in your 40s and chances of rain that could start with some flakes.

I’ll end with some warmer news: Federal forecasters released their three-month outlook for May, June, and July, and we are likely to be above normal for that period.
