Metro Detroit Weather: Clouds for Friday evening, sunny weekend

Temps in the 70s

DETROIT – Friday evening will have clouds with some breaks, keeping the Motor City warm before sunset. A few sprinkles remain possible, but it becomes drier overnight. Loads of sunshine returns this weekend, and it gets warmer.

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

Friday evening will have temps in the 70s with mostly cloudy skies. Count on an on-time start for the Tigers-Astros game at Comerica Park. First pitch will be at 7:10pm. Grab your best Tigers jacket for cooler conditions after nightfall. Fans in the upper levels will be treated to a fantastic sunset at 8:57 p.m. with clouds breaking apart and moving away.

Friday night will be cooler and clearer. Temps fall to the 50s and low 60s overnight -- great sleeping weather, and residents can continue to air out their homes.

 

 

Saturday looks spectacular for Chandler Park's 100th Birthday celebration on Detroit's East Side, Maker Faire at The Henry Ford in Dearborn and Concours d'Elegance in Plymouth! It will be sunny, warm and pleasant in the afternoon with highs near 80 degrees or a bit more.

Sunday will be a great car-wash day, too -- warmer, with highs near 85 degrees and blue skies.

Monday and Tuesday will be mostly sunny and hotter with a tad more humidity. Highs will be in the middle and upper 80s.

Wednesday and Thursday have much-needed showers in the forecast with highs in the upper 80s.
