DETROITGood Friday afternoon!

A wind advisory has been issued for Southeast Michigan from Friday night into Saturday morning.

A nice blend of sunshine and clouds will be good for our spirits and help us warm into the mid-20s this afternoon.

Clouds will increase gradually, and we will finish the day with partly sunny skies.

We start with lighter and cold winds moving NW at 5-15 mph, but winds will start picking up in the late afternoon and evening. Winds will then shift to move SW at 10-25 mph.

It’s a perfect setting for the Winter Blast in Royal Oak today and all weekend.


Today’s sunset is at 6:10 p.m.

We will have a blustery Friday night and Saturday morning. A weak disturbance will pass through, bringing scattered snow showers that may coincide with a few snow squalls.

Gusty winds will move at 20-30 mph.

Sunnier weekend ahead

Temps will starting in the low-to-mid teens early, with sub zero wind chills.

The winds will relax a bit Saturday afternoon with a few flurries and only partly sunny skies at best. Highs will hang in the low 20s all afternoon.

Sunday will be the best day of the weekend. We’ll start with a chilly morning in the single digits to low teens, but sunshine will try to bring afternoon temps into the upper 30s to near 40 degrees. It will be another breezy day, with winds moving S at 10-20 mph, so it won’t be perfect.

More wet weather next week

We’ll have a few more clouds moving in on Monday, which is President’s Day. Morning lows will be near freezing, and afternoon highs will be in the low 40s.

A little trouble moves in early Tuesday in the form of freezing rain or ice. We will make that a point of interest as we get closer. Tuesday will feature mostly rain with highs near 40 degrees.
