DETROIT – Welcome to Sunday, Motown.

This is what autumn in Michigan is all about. We have a cool, crisp late-afternoon and evening on our hands under partly cloudy to mainly clear skies. Taking in a breath speaks to you and says, “This is fall. You have time to take it all in.” And, we do. Tonight becomes chillier with, at least, three planets visible before midnight. More sunshine with higher temperatures will be here for us tomorrow and the two following days.

Sunday evening will be clear and cool with temperatures in the 50s.

Sunset was at 6:48 p.m.

Jupiter and Saturn will be visible in the southern sky before midnight. A telescope will be needed to see Neptune in the same vicinity, close to the Moon.

Sunday night becomes chilly again. Under clear skies, overnight lows will be in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Monday will have more blue skies and higher temperatures. The mercury climbs to the middle 60s in the afternoon.

Tuesday will be another day for outdoor recess with the kids and great weather for afterschool activities. It will be sunny with daytime temperatures near 70°F.

Wednesday and Thursday will be just as warm, if not warmer with highs near 70°F or a bit more under beautiful sunshine.

The next chance of rain will be Wednesday night and Thursday. Thursday will be cooler under mostly cloudy to overcast skies. Highs will be in the middle 60s.

Friday and Saturday will be brighter but cooler. Skies will be mostly sunny on each day with highs in the low 60s on Friday and in the 50s on Saturday.
