DETROIT – While change can be good, we won’t see much change in our forecast for the rest of the week -- conditions will remain average.

That means, we’ll have another classic fall day here in SE lower Michigan and Southern Ontario this Wednesday.

You can expect mostly sunny skies for most of the day, with light winds moving NE at 5-10 mph, tops. Highs today will hit the lower-to-mid 70s with no rain threats coming anywhere close. The winds from the big lakes keeps east siders and our North Zone just a hair cooler.

These crisp overnights lately, teamed with pleasant sunshine, is a great recipe for vibrant fall foliage.

Today’s sunset is at 7:18 p.m.

Repeat through the week

As mentioned, there’s very little that will vary as we get through the rest of the work and school week. Our lows will hover around 50 degrees, and highs will be in the neighborhood of 70 degrees, or slightly warmer.

The winds will remain light and our skies will be mainly clear as the ground stays dry. Enjoy this stretch with a little family apple picking trip or any kind of nature adventure.

Weekend rain

The next threat for rain comes this weekend, but will it start Saturday or Sunday?

Earlier this week, computer model data had rain moving into the area in the late afternoon Saturday and into Sunday. However, the models are trending toward a dry Saturday before sunset, with increasing clouds and mid 70s.

Rain chances then increase Saturday night late into Sunday and it could be a decent, moderate rain on and off to end our weekend.

Those showers will linger into Monday morning of next week.
