Dense Fog Advisory expires; temps to rise in Metro Detroit

Highs near 80

DETROIT – More and more sun will be beaming through by mid to late afternoon and temps will take off to near 80 degrees with light winds W 5-10 mph.

  • Dense Fog Advisory has expired

A few isolated showers or sprinkles are possible in our North Zone in the Thumb Region late, late afternoon or evening.

Thursday forecast

A dry cold front will come through tonight and drop temps nicely into early Thursday as we wake up to temps in the 50s. The coolest air of the week arrives Friday, so Thursday is cooler but still pleasant low 70s with partly sunny skies. The winds will pick up from time to time NNW 5-15 mph gusting over 20 mph.  

Friday forecast

Friday morning will likely be in the 40s for most of our Detroit suburbs and we’ll see and feel similar conditions Saturday morning. Friday will be a bright and sunny day, yet a struggle to warm as cool air keeps pouring in keeping temps in the 60s most of the day and maxing out near 70 degrees with winds NE 5-15 mph.

Saturday may start with sun, but high clouds should start increasing from remnant moisture of former Hurricane Harvey. No rain is expected, but the sun and cloud battle will be interesting to watch as we wait patiently to see where this tropical moisture will end up. Models earlier this week had rain coming in Sunday from Harvey, but now those models keep rain to our south and east. Weekend temps should be well into the 70s even with the high clouds Saturday and closer to 80 degrees Sunday.
