Wet morning followed by chilly and windy Palm Sunday

DETROIT – Welcome to Sunday, Motown.

Palm Sunday begins with humid conditions, even a thunderstorm. Later it gets windy and stays cold. It’s getting colder tonight. Tomorrow and Tuesday the weather will be milder and warmer. After some midweek showers, the tigers return on opening day and the sun returns on Good Friday, but we need our hats and coats to stay warm.

In southeast Michigan, it will still rain from last night’s showers. It will rain heavily at times and there is a possibility of a thunderstorm before dawn. Nighttime temperatures range up to near 50 ° F in the upper 40s. After breakfast, the rain slows down as temperatures continue to drop. Mercury will bottom out by mid-1940s.

Sunrise is at 7:22 am

The wind picks up speed and comes from the west on Sunday afternoon. It will blow in cooler air. It will feel like winter instead of spring, with wind chills in your 30s, even your upper 20s, for the rest of the day. Westerly winds blow 10 to 25 miles per hour with higher gusts. Here and there the sky is mostly cloudy with stray rain showers.


Sunday evening will be colder and mostly cloudy. Temperatures will drop into the 1930s after sunset.

The sunset is at 7:55 pm

Sunday night will be cold with clear skies. The overnight lows will be in the mid and upper 20s.

Monday will be sunnier and milder. Afternoon temperatures hit the upper 50’s.

Tuesday is the warmest day of the week and we can grab our sunglasses again. Daytime temperatures hit the upper 60s to near 70 ° F.

A cold front returns with more showers on Wednesday. It’ll be cooler temperatures that barely make it to 50 ° F.

Sunshine returns to the Detroit Tigers home game on Thursday. Our hometown baseball team will host Cleveland at 1:10 pm with the first field in Comerica Park. It will be mostly sunny but cool. Anyone allowed to be near or in the stadium, or wanting to get vaccinated at Ford Field, needs their coats, hats, scarves, and gloves with temperatures in their upper 30s and low 40s for most of the day.


Good Friday is also getting sunnier. It won’t be that chili with highs in the low 50s.
