DETROIT – Detroit's Fourth of July weekend will be warm and bright. Afternoon temps increase each day. Dry weather is great for outdoor activities, but families must be careful with fire.

Please join me on Twitter (@AndrewLocal4) for regular weather updates.

Saturday afternoon will be warm and sunny. People going to The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Detroit's riverfront or the Stars And Stripes Festival in Sterling Heights will have gorgeous conditions. Highs will be near 80 degrees with seasonable humidity.

Anyone cooking or camping outdoors must remember to extinguish fires completely and never leave them unattended. Smokers must never throw cigarette butts outside car windows. It remains extremely dry, and fire hazards are all around.

Saturday night will be spectacular for any fireworks displays. Overnight lows will be near 60 degrees.

Sunday will be mostly sunny and even warmer. Highs will be in the low 80s. Great weather, again, for folks spending the day on Belle Isle or at the Detroit Zoo.

Happy Independence Day, Monday! The 4th Of July will be bright and warm, again, with highs in the low and middle 80s. Tuesday and Wednesday will be hotter with highs in the middle then upper 80s.
