We're headed back to 90 degrees today. Expect some scattered afternoon thundershowers -- we've been stuck in this pattern for days now.

There may be some rain tonight into Saturday. This weekend will be warm, too, with temperatures in the 80s and more chances for some rain.

We hope everyone is enjoying time with family during this holiday weekend!

Traffic: Holiday calm 🚦

There will be some traffic heading up I-75 today as vcationers head Up North. There is no real notable construction, other than the Oakland County I-75 mess that we're all too familiar with.

If you are heading out of town be safe. Be a defensive and courteous motorist.
