DETROITGood Thursday afternoon!

The wet weather today was confined to the morning hours, giving us hope for some improving sky conditions as we move through the afternoon.

Temperatures stay on the cool side today with high temperatures struggling in the upper 60s to low 70s. Partly sunny skies will become partly cloudy or a nice mix of sun and clouds.

The winds from the north won’t be real strong, but the winds keep the cool air pumping in here for the rest of the day today -- and that will keep us on the cool side tonight and overnight.

Today’s sunset is at 9:04 p.m.

Beautiful Friday ahead

Friday looks fantastic after a cool start in the upper 40s to low 50s under mostly clear morning skies. We do expect a good deal of sunshine tomorrow, which will help our highs head back into the middle 70s.

It will be a beautiful day of setting up for the Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle before the big races on Saturday and Sunday. Right now, our weather looks good to go for all activities this weekend.

Grand Prix weekend weather

You can expect a good mix of sun and clouds Saturday with 40s to near 50 degrees in the morning, and then highs in the low-to-mid 70s once again.

Sunday will be another day in the low-to-mid 70s with morning shower chances in our North Zone. There will be limited sunshine through Metro Detroit most of the day, but most of us won’t see the threat of rain until late Sunday.

There are much better rain chances next week starting with Monday afternoon showers and storms, followed by scattered rain and thundershowers on Tuesday.
