Rain to make way for a high of 82 Tuesday
Tuesday morning in Metro Detroit is off to a soggy start, but warmer than normal temperatures are expected to replace the rain, according to the National Weather Service.
Alex Manion, a meteorologist with the weather service’s White Lake Township office, said a warm front had enough moisture and lift to bring rain into the area overnight, but won’t stick around much longer.
“Most of the rain for the day is moving out of the region,” he said. “By about 9 a.m. or 10 a.m., it will all be out of the area.”
The agency forecasts the temperature will reach a high of 82 degrees across Metro Detroit.
“That’s a little warmer than normal,” Manion said. “The average high for today is 69 degrees.”
He said the all-time record temperature for May 16 is 92 degrees, which was set in 1962.
“We’ll stay shy of that,” Manion said.
