Not as hot with chances of rain
What a weekend! Considering it was the Detroit Grand Prix weekend, as well as the Tigers at home against the White Sox in first place, warding off the rain was a priority, and we did… except for this violent one. storm that fell east-southeast of Mount Pleasant all the way to Washtenaw County late afternoon / early evening on Saturday. This storm dropped very large hailstones – we have had reports of ping pong balls, golf balls, half dollar and quarter hail in parts of Shiawassee and Livingston counties , as well as wind damage.
I don’t expect anything of this nature today… just a few routine showers and thunderstorms this morning, especially for the northern half of the region. Once that passes we get a break, followed by a scattered downpour / risk of a thunderstorm this afternoon. Highs in the upper mid-1970s (25 degrees Celsius), with a southwest wind turning north at 8 to 12 mph.
Today’s sunrise is at 5:56 a.m. and today’s sunset is at 9:11 p.m.
Once the persistent nighttime showers end, the skies usually become clear after midnight. Minimums in the upper 50s (15 degrees Celsius)… ideal sleep time! Wind northwest 4 to 8 mph.
Mainly sunny to start on Tuesday then becoming partly cloudy with a chance of showers in the afternoon… best luck is in the south. Highs in the mid-1970s (24 to 25 degrees Celsius).
Becoming generally clear Tuesday evening, with lows within 50 degrees (10 to 11 degrees Celsius).
Sunny Wednesday, with peaks in the mid-1970s (24 to 25 degrees Celsius)… what a day!
Clear skies Wednesday evening, with lows in the mid-1950s (12 to 13 degrees Celsius).
Mostly sunny Thursday, with highs in the 1980s (27-28 degrees Celsius).
Partly cloudy Thursday evening, with low to mid-1960s (17 degrees Celsius).
Friday can start dry, but showers and thunderstorms will develop. Boy, do we need this rain… let’s hope this pattern doesn’t change. Highs in the 80s (28 degrees Celsius).
Chances of rain continue at least into the first half of Friday evening, with lows in the 1960s (16 degrees Celsius).
Saturday promises to be spectacular, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70 degrees (26 degrees Celsius).
Sunday is more of a question mark. We will probably start with a little sunshine and then see the clouds increase with a chance of rain by the end of the afternoon. Maximums in the upper 70s (26 degrees Celsius). Stay tuned…
