Metro Detroit weather: Temperatures rise as summer comes to an end

Remnants of Irma to bring clouds, light sprinkles

DETROIT – We're just about done with forecast mentions of Irma, which will most certainly be retired as a hurricane name, but its remnants will still provide clouds and few light sprinkles.

Lows will hit the mid- to upper 50s by daybreak.

Thursday should bring a few more splashes of sun, but there will still be a good deal of clouds. Highs will be slightly milder, in the mid-70s.

Temperatures are heading higher for Friday. Skies will be mostly sunny as we get close to 80 degrees by afternoon.

Then, we’ll squeeze out every last bit of summer for our last weekend of the season (Autumn begins Sept. 22). Highs Saturday and Sunday will reach the low 80s, which will be coming with tons of sun. Just to make sure we get a summer feel, Mother Nature will toss in some noticeable humidity as a side dish.

Our only shot at rain beyond Wednesday night lies with a cold front late Sunday night into Monday. Beyond that, we’ll stay dry the entire next work week.
