Metro Detroit weather: Cool Saturday night with long dry spell beginning

Lows in the 50s, low 60s

DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday night, Motown.

A thin line of scattered showers and storms departs Southeast Michigan shortly after sunset. Afterward, skies clear and it becomes cooler overnight. The heat gets turned up by tomorrow afternoon with abundant sunshine. No rain is sight, Sunday, but it will not be on the horizon for several days either.

Saturday night will become clear, and it will be mild. Overnight lows will be in the 50s to low and middle 60s. We can sleep with the windows up again without worrying about getting wet.

Sunday will be mostly sunny and remain hotter than average. Afternoon temperatures will be in the middle and upper 80s.

Monday and all of next week will be mostly sunny and hot. We’ll need to reactivate our sprinklers, but we’ll have good car-wash days. Each day, daytime temps will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Night temps will be in the 60s.
