Local 4Casters say warm, dry weather this weekend
DETROIT -

Friday night was a perfect night for baseball or any other outdoor activities.

The Tigers beat the Rangers at Comerica Park, the APBA Gold Cup's free activities will be wrapping up on Belle Isle and it was the inaugural opening of the Detroit Opera House's rooftop. Evening temps were in the 70s with a clear, blue and orange sky at sunset.

Thermometers will drop to the low 60s and upper 50s overnight, which is great for sleeping with the windows open.

Good weather news continues this weekend with mostly sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will be warmer with highs near 85. Sunday will be hotter with highs near 90. The Southfield Festival of Hope will be happening, more Tigers' baseball will be played and the hydroplanes will continue racing on both days.

The UV index will be very high so remember to use sunscreen to soccer, doing outdoor chores or just walking around as the temperatures climb.

The heat and humidity return with a vengeance next week with highs in the 90s, heat indexes in the upper 90s and afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
