DETROIT – Welcome to Friday evening, Motown!

Skies become more blue late Friday afternoon. We are in for a mild evening and night. Then it becomes hotter, tomorrow. "Barry" is bashing The Gulf and may impact Michigan by the middle of next week.

Friday afternoon temps get closer to 80 degrees as skies clear. Humidity remains low, and it feels great.

Everyone can enjoy outdoor softball and baseball games and volleyball and tennis matches as we go through Friday evening. Temps will be in the 70s under mostly clear skies.

Sunset is at 9:10 p.m. ET.

Friday night will become clear and remain mild. Overnight lows will be in the low and middle 60s. It's a great night to sleep with the windows up.


Saturday becomes hotter and more humid, quickley. Temps soar to the 80s by noon, then to the upper 80s in the afternoon. With hotter, more unstable air and an approaching cold front, scattered showers and storms pop up after 2 p.m. ET. Remain alert for dangerous lightning and some heavy downpours.

After a cold front passes, Sunday become sunnier and less humid again. Highs will be near 85 degrees. Perfect day to feel the sand between your toes or taking in the scent of freshly cut grass while kicking the soccer ball around with your kids.


Tropical Storm Barry has winds of 65 mph and is moving only at 5 mph. It is battering the Gulf Coast heavy rain and life-threatening 3 to 6 foot storm surge. It may briefly become a Category 1 Hurricane, Friday night/early Saturdaymorning, as the storm makes landfall. Rainfall will be measured with a yard stick before the end of the weekend.

In the Detroit Area, Monday and Tuesday become more hazy, hot and humid. Highs near 90 by Monday and in the low 90s, Tuesday. Heat indices near 95 degrees.

The remnants of "Barry" could spell more rain for Southeast Michigan, Wednesday and Thursday, with highs near 90 degrees.
