Detroit: Damp Conditions to Precede Late-Week Cooldown

After a very mild start to the week in Detroit, some changes are on the way for the end of the week.

A storm dipping across the Great Lakes will bring some wet weather and a cooler air mass with it.

Although it will be dry for most of Thursday, clouds will increase through the afternoon with a few showers expected to develop during the evening.

As this storm moves southward on Friday, the showery activity will continue to overrun the city in waves throughout the day.

While it will not be a washout, on-and-off showers will make the Friday morning and evening commutes damp.

High pressure beginning to build in late Friday evening will bring a shot of noticeably cooler air on Saturday, with afternoon highs getting into the lower 50s F.

This cooler air mass will interact with the warmer lake waters, allowing a small amount of lake-enhanced shower activity in the form of a spotty shower or two throughout the day on Saturday.

With the help of drier air and abundant sunshine, the second half of the weekend will have afternoon temperatures rebounding into the lower and middle 50s.
