Mostly clear Saturday night, with lows in the low to mid 60s.

Mostly sunny on Sunday (perhaps becoming partly cloudy during the afternoon south of Detroit as a weak weather system to our south slowly drifts north). Highs in the low to mid 80s.

Partly cloudy Sunday night, with lows in the mid 60s.

Partly cloudy Monday with a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the low 80s. Hopefully the rain will hold off for the WDIV Fighting Peacocks softball game Monday evening -- it's a big one between the only two undefeated teams left in our league!

Partly cloudy Monday night, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the mid 60s.

Mostly cloudy Tuesday with showers and thunderstorms likely. Highs in the mid 70s.

Showers and thunderstorms end later Tuesday night. Lows near 60.

Partly cloudy Wednesday, with highs in the mid 70s. Note: some of my computer models suggest that the weather system affecting us Tuesday and Tuesday night may slow down just a tad, which would extend the Tuesday night rain into Wednesday morning.

Right now, I think we'll see the rain end late Tuesday night, and we'd then be dry for the rest of the day, but this is a very close call. Those of you farther east in Ontario, of course, will see a much better chance of the rain lasting into Wednesday morning.

Becoming mostly clear Wednesday night, with lows in the mid to upper 50s.

Then mostly sunny both Thursday and Friday, with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
