Saturday evening will be mostly cloudy and warm. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s.

Sunset is at 8:56 p.m.

Nasty showers and thunderstorms roll across Southwest Michigan before midnight and arrive in Detroit and Southeast Michigan after midnight. Some heavy downpours have a chance of remaining along with some lightning and gusty winds, especially in our West Zone (closer to western Lenawee, Livingston and Washtenaw counties). Overnight lows will be near 60 degrees.

Sunday will have showers and thunderstorms before breakfast. Then a second wave of wetness develops late morning and midday. It still becomes hotter with highs in the low 80s.

Welcome to Memorial Day, Monday. Commemorations and parades have a chance of getting wet, mainly in the late morning and afternoon. It will be hotter than average, again, with highs in the middle and upper 80s. Increased humidity will make it feel like it’s near 90 degrees or more. Remember to always keep children and pets away from unattended vehicles.

The mid-summer like pattern continues Tuesday and Wednesday. Afternoon highs will be in the middle and upper 80s with showers and thunderstorms possible.
