It's the weekend! The weather is planning to cooperate with us, for the most part. If you're heading Up North, you could catch some showers on Saturday. But in Metro Detroit, a picture-perfect August day.
We need the rain, though, so we'll cross our fingers for a garden variety thunderstorm.
Check the latest forecast at ClickOnDetroit.com/WeatherCenter.
There are two big freeway closures you need to know about this weekend, from Friday night to Monday morning:
- Stretch of EB I-696 closing in Macomb County for roadwork this weekend
- Eastbound I-94 to close this weekend in Detroit for road, bridge work

It was another busy week in Metro Detroit -- let's look back at the top stories:
A 23-year-old man who was charged with open murder in connection with the fatal beating of Tyler Jordan Wingate, 24, was finally arrested this week after a week-long manhunt. Sources told Local 4 that Lawrence Davis, 23, confessed to the crime.
A Macomb Township man was sentenced to 60 weekend days in jail after his wife installed hidden cameras in her kitchen and caught him deliberately poisoning her coffee, according to officials.
Another alligator has been found in a state where alligators do not natively reside, just days after the last sighting in Metro Detroit. An alligator was found Tuesday morning on the side of a road in Oceola Township.
We've been rolling out the Vote 4 The Best top-10 lists all week and the best sandwich shops list has been one of the biggest hits. It's surprise. Who doesn't like a sandwich? See all of the winners here.
