Weather: Another great day in metro Detroit!

So, when does the shoe drop?


DETROIT – Here we are in the traditional "Dog Days of August," but with nary a dog day in sight.

Rather, we have mostly sunny days, with afternoon temps in the mid to upper 70s, and comfortable humidity. By the way, for those of you who crave 80s and 90s, remember that the August sun still feels pretty hot when it's 77° out. And also remember that the sun's rays are as strong on a day in the 70s as they are on a day near 90°, so don't forgo the sunscreen.

Skies will become mostly clear tonight, although some of those pretty high-level cirrus clouds are possible again late tonight, which means that some of you may have a spectacular sunrise Friday morning. Make sure to pin your photos onto Storm Pins and we'll get some on the air! Lows in the upper 50s (15° Celsius for those of you across the River) near Detroit's Urban Heat Island, and in the low to mid 50s in the more rural areas. North-northeast wind at 3 to 6 mph.

Mostly sunny to start our Friday (TGIF!), then becoming partly cloudy as we start to see a gradual increase in cloud cover. Highs in the upper 70s (26° Celsius). Northeast wind at 4 to 8 mph will keep things cooler on the Michigan side of Lake Huron.

Mostly cloudy Friday night, with the slight chance for a brief, light shower. Lows in the low 60s.
