Metro Detroit weather: Hot but dry Friday; weekend shower chance

It’s going to be humid but not unbearable as the heat index will hit 90F or slightly warmer. Don’t forget that sunscreen and a little extra water if you’re spending some time outdoors. Winds are still light NE to SE 3-8 mph and that wind off of the Big Lakes does help reduce the mugginess just a little bit.

DETROIT – By now, there are no secrets or hidden layers to our Pure Michigan weather, so expect more of the same this Friday morning around Metro Detroit.

We really couldn’t ask for a better way to end the work and school (for some) week as temperatures continue to slowly rise today and into the weekend. We will see mostly sunny skies most of the morning and a few clouds join the mix as we heat up with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Weekend weather forecast

Saturday looks like another absolute beauty as we start the weekend with tons of sunshine as highs head into the upper 80s with a tad more humidity with winds S 5-10 mph. Sunshine will give way to some high clouds sneaking into Western Michigan in the early afternoon, and that turns our sun into partly sunny skies by late, late afternoon around these parts. It will be a dry day, but those clouds are moving in ahead of a front and some showers on the way for Sunday.

Shower chances increase Sunday as a weak cool front will blow through Metro Detroit in the afternoon. Scattered showers midday means it’s not a washout of a Sunday around here, but plan on a slight delay if you have outdoor plans.

Monday looks fabulous with sunshine and mid to upper 80s, and most of Tuesday looks decent before showers and storms arrive late in the afternoon or evening. Those showers will linger into the first part of Wednesday next week.
