DETROIT – The sun will come out as the afternoon progresses, which will boost highs to near 80 degrees. Southwest wind moving at 10 to 15 mph will shift to the west as the front approaches, and then to the northwest behind the front.

Wednesday’s sunset is at 8:59 p.m.

Wednesday night will be mostly clear and much cooler, with lows in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. North winds will blow at 5 to 10 mph.

More wet weather

Thursday morning will be mostly sunny, then clouds increase during the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 60s. Rain will develop Thursday night and continues at least into Friday morning, before diminishing to showers Friday afternoon.

Lows Thursday night will be in the upper 40s, and highs Friday will be only in the mid 50s.

Showers will continue Friday night, with lows in the low to mid 40s.

Holiday weekend forecast update

Computer models now suggest that an upper low pressure system will develop Saturday, changing our anticipated forecast for the holiday weekend. As such, I’m adding light showers to the Saturday forecast (especially the southern half of the area), and more clouds -- but stay tuned: This is definitely not a done deal. We’ll keep an eye on the computer models and provide updates throughout the week.

Saturday highs will be in the mid 60s.

Our Sunday forecast remains unchanged, with mostly sunny skies and very pleasant highs in the low 70s.

Memorial Day will start partly cloudy before clouds increase during the afternoon. t remains dry, however, with highs reaching the mid 70s.
