Sunny, pleasant Saturday in Detroit

Highs near 75

DETROIT – Fathers' Day Weekend will have some dynamite weather in Detroit and Southeast Michigan. In fact, the entire Lower Peninsula will have extraordinary weather Saturday and Sunday. Plus, boating weather will be beautiful.

Saturday morning will be cool and crisp; a terrific morning to wake up to with the windows open. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees at dawn. Early-risers going fishing or walking the dog will feel invigorated as the sun rises with the mercury in the thermometer.

Saturday afternoon will be sunny, warm and delightful. Highs will be near 75 degrees with comfortable humidity. It will be a great hair-day. The Tigers take on the Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park just after 4pm ET. Baseball weather will be a homerun for the boys of summer with a light south wind 5 to 10 mph.

By they time the Tigers win Saturday evening, skies will be mostly clear with temperatures in the 60s. This is just perfect for anyone relaxing on the porch or having a barbeque.

Saturday night will be clear and cool with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.

Happy Fathers' Day, Sunday! More sunshine will appear with warmer conditions, and it remains comfortable. Dads with an early tee-time will have great weather on the links. Same for tennis aficionados and anyone taking a dip in the pool or heading for the beach. The Tigers and Twins play, again, just after 1pm ET in downtown Detroit. Afternoon temps will be in the low 80s.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday night and much of the work-week. Daytime highs will be in the low 80s, and nighttime lows will be in the 60s Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. More settled weather may return Thursday and Friday with highs in the 70s.
