DETROIT – Metro Detroit has finally ditched the clouds, and we're not expecting many more for the remainder of the week.
Skies will be mostly clear Tuesday night. That, plus a calm wind, will give us cooler temperatures. Nearly everyone will fall to the 50s overnight. Lows in the Metro Zone will be around 60 degrees. There's still a chance we could see some patchy fog closer to daybreak, too.
Temperatures will start a slow upward trend Wednesday, with plenty of sunshine getting us to the upper 70s.
We'll see a similar number Thursday, again with mostly sunny skies. The heat will continue to build into the weekend as a ridge of high pressure sets up shop over us.
That will take temperatures all the way to the mid-80s by Saturday. Add in some humidity, and we'll have a big reminder that summer's not done with us until Monday. Autumn officially begins at 3:50 a.m. Monday.
We're going to be in a dry stretch for a while. Sunday will be our next shot at any precipitation -- we're expecting showers and a few thunderstorms.
Parts of the area are in a moderate drought, but some of those areas did get rain since the update came out last week. We might see some changes when the next update arrives Thursday.
