Spring snow showers with summer vibes to end the week

DETROIT – Think about it, we started the week setting a daily snowfall record, and we will end the week well into the 70s (26 degrees Celsius). It’s spring in Michigan.

The transition brings weather – and that weather is heading our way in the form of a big raindrop that you can easily track on our app’s real-time radar. If you’re one of the few who doesn’t have the best weather app in the country, just go to the App Store and search for “WDIV” – the Local4Casters weather app is there, and it’s free.

As mentioned above (along with some rumbles of thunder), the rain is going to play havoc with the Detroit Tigers’ home game tonight. It’ll be a close call as to whether they’ll be able to play, but most of the Friday (April 22) afternoon high-res models don’t suggest we won’t be able to play. The rain will ease around dawn, with lows in the mid 40s (7-8 degrees Celsius), then rising to near 50 degrees (10 degrees Celsius) by 8 a.m., easterly winds will blow at 5 to 10 mph.

Friday evening sunset is at 8:23 p.m. and Saturday morning sunrise is at 6:40 a.m.

Saturday

Any lingering scattered showers around dawn (best luck is in the thumb) will quickly clear up, with mostly sunny skies developing. We will have windy heat for the rest of the day, with highs in the upper 70s (26 degrees Celsius). However, south-southeast winds of 10-15 mph will keep things noticeably cooler for those on the east side who get that wind from the cold lakes.

Mostly clear and balmy skies Saturday evening; what a great evening for grilling with lows close to 60 degrees (15 to 16 degrees Celsius).

Sunday

Mainly sunny to start on Sunday, then the sky becomes partly sunny in the afternoon with a few showers around 3 or 4 pm. Again, keep an eye on our app’s real-time radar if you’re going to grill, wash your car, hit the golf course, or whatever else you have planned to enjoy the great outdoors. Highs are expected to climb to near 80 degrees (27 degrees Celsius) and then level off or drop slightly after clouds increase over the afternoon. It will also be another windy day.

Showers continue Sunday evening, with lows in the mid to high 50s (14 degrees Celsius).

Monday

The possible showers on Monday morning end early, associated with the passage of a cold front. The cooler air mass behind the front will only maintain highs in the 60s (17 degrees Celsius).

Mid-week forecast

We then regress to a colder regime for the rest of the week. Wednesday will be the coldest day, with highs only in the 40s (8 to 9 degrees Celsius).
