Metro Detroit weather forecast: Humidity makes one last stand

Cooler temperatures last all next week

DETROIT – Fog will start forming overnight. Clouds will be rolling out during the evening, leading to clear skies overnight. But as the clouds exit, fog begins to form, and this will be more than a few patches. Lows will be cooler, in the mid-60s in most locations. Humidity will be slightly lower, so it will be muggy instead of tropical by morning.

Fog could be stubborn to clear in spots Friday morning, but it should be gone by lunchtime. Some sunshine will emerge before clouds return late, ahead of showers late Friday night. The rain should hold off until after high school football games.

Humidity will go back up with one last muggy gasp Saturday, but that, and an approaching cold front, will come together to give us shower chances in the first part of the day and scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. Some of those storms could be strong, despite high temperatures that will only reach the upper 70s. We’ll also have breezy conditions on the heels of that front Saturday evening.

Sunday brings a big change for what a lot of us have been waiting for: Low humidity, cooler temperatures and a return of plenty of sunshine. Highs will be in the low 70s.

The low humidity will last all next week.
