DETROIT – The week of pleasant late-summer weather has panned out as expected, and we have yet another fantastic day ahead of us.

Clouds rolling in tonight

Today’s sunset is at 8:03 p.m.

Labor Day weekend forecast

We should have at least partly cloudy skies for part of the day on Saturday, but clouds will increase by late afternoon. The daylight hours should remain dry, although a spotty shower cannot be technically ruled out late in the day, especially west of US-23. Highs in the mid-to-upper 70s (25 to 26 degrees Celsius).

Scattered light showers are more likely Saturday night, with lows in the low 60s (16 degrees Celsius).

The Saturday night showers should be out of here by dawn Sunday, leaving us partly cloudy for the day with highs near 80 degrees (27 degrees Celsius).

Mostly clear Sunday night, with lows in the upper 50s (15 degrees Celsius).

Labor Day looks fantastic, with mostly sunny skies and highs near 80 degrees (27 degrees Celsius).

So, if we can just keep those weekend showers mostly relegated to Saturday night, the bulk of the holiday weekend will be wonderful -- what great news for heading out to Arts, Beats and Eats in Royal Oak, the Michigan State Fair in Novi, or whatever your outdoor plans are!
