DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday night, Motown.

Today was warmer than average. After a warm night, tomorrow will be hotter than average. Unlike today’s sun-filled skies (or, at least, filtered-sun), tomorrow will have a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Saturday night will be partly cloudy and mild. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Sunrise is at 7:10 a.m.

Sunday will be partly sunny and hotter and more humid. Highs will be in the middle and upper 80s. The atmosphere will be more unstable and showers and storms from the west travel over Southeast Michigan in the afternoon and evening. There is a better chance of heavier and more widespread wet and stormy weather in the Motor City and north of Eight Mile Road.

The Detroit Lions host the San Francisco 49ers at Ford Field. We’ll have dry weather for tailgaters, but the ride home will be wet, especially for any football fans headed north and driving closer to sunset.

Any wet weather is gone by daybreak, Monday. The day will be mostly sunny and warm. Highs near 80 degrees or just a bit more.

Tuesday will be steamy, again, with sunshine and clouds and the mercury returning to the middle and upper 80s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible.

Wednesday will be warm with a chance of showers, too. It will be partly sunny with highs in the low and middle 80s.
