DETROIT – Welcome to Thursday, Motown.

We are batting a thousand in the weather department for this month. On this, the second day of September, we have perfect weather; blue skies and warm conditions.

Thursday afternoon is sunny with temperatures in the middle and upper 70s. A 5-to-10 miles per hour breeze out of the north is keeping us dry and comfortable with dew point temperatures in the 40s and low 50s. When you get the urge to go to the ice cream truck or to head to the ice cream parlor, take it! The weather is perfect to enjoy a scoop or two or three very little melting.

Thursday evening will be clear and mild. Temperatures fall to the upper 60s and low 70s before sunset.

Sunset is at 8:05 p.m.

Thursday night will be clear and cool to chilly. Children will be inspired to become astronauts or scientists or engineers as they gaze at Jupiter and Saturn in the southeastern sky by 9 p.m. or afterward.

Sunrise is at 7:01 a.m.

Friday will go from sunny to partly sunny as mid- and high-level clouds arrive from the west. It becomes warm, again, and remains comfortable with highs in the upper 70s.

Great day for college football, Saturday. Wayne State University and Eastern Michigan University have home games under partly sunny skies like the rest of Southeast Michigan. Afternoon temperatures will be in the middle and upper 70s.

There is a chance of scattered rain Saturday night into Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy and warm. Highs near 80 degrees.

Labor Day Monday is looking good for parades, commemorations and taking one last dip in the pool. It will be partly sunny and warm with daytime temperatures near 80 degrees.

There is a better chance of rain Tuesday and Wednesday. Each day will be mostly cloudy with highs in the 70s.
