DETROIT – Highs will hang in the lower 70s with a warmer wind moving SSE at 4-9 mph.

We have no threat for severe weather today, just a slow-moving storm that will throw rain and isolated thundershowers on and off. New computer model data hints at fewer showers after 5 p.m. or 6 p.m.

Today’s sunset is at 7:02 p.m.

Even more rain ahead

The weekend forecast hasn’t gotten any easier as we’ve gotten closer to it.

Computer model data is now showing showers before 2 p.m. on Saturday before skies try to clear out. Saturday afternoon will be a gradual transition from a few midday showers to mostly sunny skies by the end of the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid-to-upper 70s once that Saturday sun busts through.

Sunday looks to be mostly dry with a chance for a few showers in the morning, especially in our West and North Zones. It looks like we will see a blend of clouds and sun throughout your Sunday, with highs at 75-80 degrees and a warming breeze moving S at 5-15 mph.

Next week preview

Monday looks good for most of Michigan, as we should see sun and clouds and temps flirting with 80 degrees. Showers will move through late on Monday and/or Tuesday morning.

Computer models also show a cold front blasting through our region on Thursday, with showers and storms and then cooler air for next weekend.

Stay tuned.
