Metro Detroit Weather: Cooler temperatures to linger through holiday weekend

DETROIT – It's a much different feel from earlier this week. 

Cooler air and lower humidity will linger through the start of our holiday weekend.

Tonight, skies will become mostly clear as temperatures drop to the 40s throughout southeast Michigan. And yes, those will be the coldest temperatures we have to endure for the next seven days.

Brisk northeast winds could cause some lakeshore flooding in Sanilac and St. Clair counties.

Friday will feel nearly identical to today, highs will reach only the upper 60s in our Metro and South Zones with slightly cooler numbers elsewhere. We should see mostly sunny skies to start. Clouds from Harvey will start moving in our South and Metro Zones by late in the day.

Our traditional end of summer will feel more like summer this weekend. Even though Saturday will stay below normal with morning lows near 50 and daytime highs around 70, Sunday highs will jump to 80.  Both days will feature dry conditions with partly cloudy skies. 

Labor Day Monday will be mainly dry with highs rising to the mid-80s. Thunderstorms will move in late in the day, most likely in the evening.

Beyond that it’s a cool back-to-school stretch. Check the 10 Day Forecast for more.
