DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday, Motown.

This is likely the best Memorial Day Weekend weather in Southeast Michigan for a long time. It will be bright and sensibly warm today. Tonight will have a few more clouds with only the slightest chance of rain. After a warm front passes, more sunshine comes back tomorrow with higher temperatures. The holiday itself will be hotter.

We have great weather for walks in the park, little league games and big league contests. Saturday afternoon will be mostly sunny and seasonably warm. Temperature highs near 75°F.

The Detroit Tigers play the Cleveland Guardians for major-league baseball at Comerica Park. The first pitch of the game is at 4:10 p.m.

Saturday evening temperatures will be in the 60s after sunset.

Saturday night will be partly to mostly cloudy and mild. Overnight lows will be in the 50s and low 60s. There’s only a slight chance of a widely scattered shower with a warm front on the way.

Sunset is at 9 p.m.

Looking at the rest of the 4 day weekend
