DETROIT – Today we’ll experience some of the best weather in the country, and in the world, right here in Pure Michigan.

Grab your shorts and shades if you can on this Thursday, as highs will be heading into the mid and upper 70s this afternoon. Winds will be a bit lighter today, moving N at 5-12 mph -- although, some gusts of 10-20 mph should be anticipated, and those will keep pumping in this pleasant air.

Bright sunshine will rule the day with a few lake enhanced clouds, especially in our North Zone and across Southern Ontario.

The National Weather Service in White Lake gets average temperatures this time of year by averaging high temps on this date for the last 30 years. Our average high this time of year is in the upper 70s. Spot on!

Today’s sunset is at 8:05 p.m.

Sunshine Friday

We expect tons of sunshine Friday as we wake up to temps in the 50s again around Metro Detroit. We also expect a few more clouds on Friday afternoon without the worry of wet weather.

Yes, it’s a dry day, Friday!

Highs will be right in that safe and comfortable upper 70s range with pretty tranquil winds moving ENE at 4-9 mph, making for a picture perfect end to the week. Friday night high school football games will get the same treatment, as temps will cool down into the 60s later on.

Labor Day weekend forecast

It’s Labor Day weekend, with the Arts, Beats, and Eats festival happening in Royal Oak! One tiny weather obstacle is possible this weekend, and we’re keeping a close eye on it.

Computer model data brings rain chances to Metro Detroit Saturday night into early Sunday, and will likely occur while most of us are sleeping.

Highs should get back into the low 80s both Saturday and Sunday.

Labor Day should be beautiful around here. Our next shot at rain will be Tuesday afternoon or evening into Wednesday morning next week.
