DETROITGood Thursday afternoon!

There are chances of light, scattered showers today, but by no means will it be a rained-out day. Highs will be in the upper 70s. A southwest wind will blow at 4 to 8 mph.

Thursday’s sunset is at 9:05 p.m.

Skies will clear Thursday afternoon across the northwestern half of our area, then across the rest of the area this evening. Clouds then increase after midnight, with a scattered shower not out of the question. Lows will be near 60 degrees. A southwest wind will blow at 2 to 5 mph.

It will be mostly cloudy with a scattered shower possible on Friday (TGIF!), then skies begin clearing by late afternoon. Highs will surge into the mid 80s.

Friday night will be mostly clear and milder, with lows in the mid 60s.

Weekend forecast

Get the air conditioners, swimming pools and sun screen ready!

We’ll have mostly sunny skies this weekend, with highs in the upper 80s Saturday, and in the low 90s on Sunday. Overnight lows Saturday night will be in the mid 60s.

Although the humidity will creep up a bit this weekend, it doesn’t become especially noticeable until next week.

Peek at next week

It will remain hot and humid for most of next week.

Monday should be dry, but increasing humidity means that an afternoon thunderstorm becomes slightly more likely each day starting Tuesday. Highs through Wednesday will remain near or a little above 90 degrees, with overnight lows in the upper 60s. Thunderstorm chances ramp up even more Thursday into Friday, with the higher rain chances knocking highs back into the mid 80s, although overnight lows will remain uncomfortably warm.
