Cold front has come and gone

Get ready for another spectacular stretch of weather!

The cold front came through right on schedule, and now a cooler and drier air mass is overspreading southeast Michigan. Some of us got a much-needed soaker overnight and earlier today (I had 0.95" at my house), while others didn't fair quite as well (0.40" at Metro Airport). The night ahead will feature clearing skies and quickly diminishing wind...you'll be dry at the Tiger game this evening, with temperatures falling to around 60° by the end of the game. Overnight lows should reach the mid to upper 40s (9° Celsius for you Canadians), so it'll be a crisp start to your Sunday morning.

Mostly sunny to start our Sunday, then becoming partly cloudy…a great day for golf, tennis, a walk around the neighborhood, and the Cider Mill! Highs in the upper 60s (20° Celsius). Sunday's sunrise is at 7:18 AM, and Sunday's sunset is at 7:35 PM.

Mostly sunny Sunday night, with lows again in the 45° to 50° range.

Still no change to my extended forecast: the week ahead looks to bring yet another extended dry spell, with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies at least through the end of the week. In fact, some of my computer models keep us mostly dry for the next nine days…right through next weekend. That's why we desperately needed some good soaking rains overnight into this morning (I know it's the weekend, but we really needed the rain). Highs this coming week will start in the low 70s, and then creep up into the mid 70s. Overnight lows will also slowly rise, from the upper 40s early in the week to the mid 50s by the end of the week.

The weather looks spectacular for the Jewish High Holy Day of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) Tuesday evening through Wednesday, as well as for the Muslim Festival of Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) Wednesday evening through Thursday!
