Rainy start to the work week in Metro Detroit
A cool "stationary front" that's been parked over southeast Michigan over the weekend will remain in place Monday, but warmer temperatures are expected by the middle of the week, the National Weather Service said.
The northern part of Metro Detroit was experiencing rain Monday, with clouds sticking around to bring more drizzle through the early afternoon, said meteorologist Cory Behnke. The high will reach 59 degrees and the low will fall to 56.
More serious rain showers and possible thunderstorms aren't expected until Monday night, when a half-inch of rain is anticipated, Behnke said. Rainfall totals could be higher north of M-59. That rain is expected to fall between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Tuesday morning, "spotty showers" are possible, but the day will otherwise be dry, hitting a high of 72 degrees and an overnight low of 56, Behnke said.
Wednesday is expected to be the warmest day of the week, reaching a high of 77 degrees. There could be wind gusts of 10 to 20 mph, with the low expected to fall to 68.
There's a 40 percent chance of rain on Thursday. The day will be mild to start with a high of 74 degrees before a cold front begins to move through the region, Behnke said.
Friday will be cooler with highs in the mid 60s.
