DETROIT -

Wow, what a weekend ahead, and I’m not just talking about the weather.

This is a big weekend of major activities here in Detroit, with the Grand Prix, Hoedown, and Wheel of Fortune auditions all in town, and with picture perfect weather! Don’t forget the sunblock if you and the kids will be out in the sun -- the sun’s rays are close to their strongest of the entire year this weekend.

It will be mostly clear tonight with lows in the low 50s -- upper 40s away from the concrete of the big cities -- and a very light northeast wind.

Mostly sunny on Saturday with highs in the upper 70s to around 80 (warmer to the west, and cooler near the Great Lakes). East wind at 5 to 10 mph. Clear skies continue Saturday night, with lows in the mid 50s.
