The return of showers, thunderstorms and cooler air to Detroit will hold off until after another warm day unfolds on Monday.

The warming trend that started on Easter Sunday will continue through Monday.

Despite an increase in clouds, temperatures will still soar into the middle to upper 70s.

The clouds will be a signal that umbrellas and jackets will once again be needed in the near future.

Those with outdoor plans will not have to worry about any disruptions from the weather through the early afternoon. Late Monday afternoon, however, a shower or thunderstorm will reach Detroit.

More numerous showers will follow for Monday night, potentially interfering with the baseball game at Comerica Park between the hometown Tigers and the Chicago White Sox Monday evening.

While a stray shower will still be around Tuesday morning, many more residents may notice the arrival of noticeably cooler air. Temperatures on Tuesday will be held to the upper 50s with brisk winds creating even lower RealFeel® temperatures.

The chill will linger through Wednesday before another rebound in temperatures follows for late in the week.

This Day In Weather History

New York/MA (1819)
Two simultaneous cloudbursts, 45 miles apart; A bucket survey claimed 15" of rain fell at Catskill, NY. Highways were completely washed out. One washout started west of the old Albany Post Road and spread eastward across the road until it was 190 feet wide and 80 feet deep in a distance of 160 paces. At Westfield Valley, "suddenly the windows of heaven seemed to have been opened and the rain fell in such torrents that in less than 5 hours, Westfield River rose at least 20 feet above its usual height at low water. The river overflowed its banks with great rapidity and violence, sweeping away every bridge, fence and building which opposed its current."
