The rest of Thursday afternoon remains warm across most of Southeast Michigan, including Motown. Temps will be in the 70s under fair skies. Still cooler closer to The Thumb and Lake Huron because of a northeast wind whipping off Lake Huron.

Sunset is at 8:50 p.m. ET.

After 9 p.m. ET, Venus can be seen to the right of the new crescent moon in the northwest sky.

Thursday night will be cooler. Overnight lows in the low 50s in Detroit and in the low to upper 40s in the rest of the region. Skies will be partly cloudy.

Friday will be mostly sunny and cooler. Temps will be in the upper 60s; near the average high of 70 degrees.

Showers move in late Friday night and early Saturday morning. Saturday, itself, will be overcast with highs near 70 degrees. Showers will be scattered, especially in the morning and midday.
