Elevated fire danger along with dry weather conditions continue for Metro Detroit — Here’s what to expect

4Weather warning – After being sunny to start Monday, we have seen some clouds roll in throughout the afternoon and evening, and we will keep some of that cloud cover and dry weather patterns into the forecast for the rest of the day. all day on Tuesday.

We have a cold front door, or a cold front moving north to south last night and into this morning, so even though we’re entering the 80s on Monday , but we’ll only see the ’70s this afternoon, so temperatures run a few degrees cooler.

Fire risk increases Tuesday

Of greater concern on Tuesday was the increasing fire risk we have across the region. The Hurricane Prediction Center has placed our region at greater fire risk due to the dry weather we’ve seen over the past 16 days, so we’ve had more than 2 weeks without a significant amount of rain. and parts of the area remain at D0 Intensity Drought, or labeled as “Extraordinarily Dry” due to lack of rainfall.

Wildfire risk continues to increase today across Southeast Michigan due to lack of rain and dry weather

Throughout Tuesday, some of us will see some strong winds combined with dry ground and low relative humidity as forecast. This will create the “fuel” needed to get any fire burned outside quickly spiraling out of control. If you must burn outside, make sure the fire is constantly monitored and have some plans in place to quickly extinguish the fire if it becomes out of control. Contact your local fire department with any questions and in the event of loss of fire control.

Dry weather continues

High pressure will continue to dominate the forecast through the middle and end of next week. Although we have cloud cover around today, we can expect more sunshine to continue through the weekend, before some more cloud cover hits the area on Friday. High temperatures remain in the 70s to the end of the week.

The Necessary Rain Is Finally Back

Our next chance of rain will move into the area by the end of the week and that looks like a good chance of rain as well. A higher level of disturbance will move into this area late Saturday and offer a chance of rain, so we should have most of the day in dry conditions. Sunday is likely to be the wetter day throughout the day. As that disturbance moves to the East, we should stop all rain. Temperatures warm back into the 80s early in the week, before the rain cools us down in the 70s at the weekend.

Dryer weather is forecast to return early next week, with possibly sunshine and clouds, temperatures to remain at 70 degrees Celsius and is forecast to last until early next week.
