DETROITGood morning and happy Friday!

Cooler air has been slowly moving in overnight, and we can start to feel the difference in the air with morning temps still dropping into the upper 50s to low 60s.

A cold front moved through yesterday, and there’s another weak cool front moving through this morning, so we’ll enjoy less muggy air and a cooler breeze today.

Today’s sunrise was at 6:24 a.m.

Rain possible this weekend

We will fall just shy of 80 degrees on Saturday, the last day of July. You can expect tons of morning sunshine Saturday as we wake to cool temps in the 50s. Clouds will increase in the afternoon across the state, leading to a rain chance after dinner in Metro Detroit.

We will see scattered showers late Saturday into early Sunday, but those showers will likely fade before sunrise Sunday. Sunday afternoon will be a mix of sun and clouds, with a weak disturbance bringing the chance for a stray shower or two. Sunday afternoon will reach high temps in the mid-to-upper 70s.

Most of us won’t see much rain this weekend, and next week looks a bit dry as we usher in the month of August.

Sunday’s weak front will keep cooler-than-average temps in play for the first part of next week.

So, Monday will be nice and bright with 50s in the morning and mid 70s through the afternoon. Tuesday will be a repeat of Monday, and then we get into the 80s by Wednesday of next week. The forecast models keep most of SE lower Michigan and southern Ontario dry all of next week. Stay tuned.
