DETROITGood Thursday afternoon!

Without AC or a place to cool down, heat illness is still a threat, so be mindful and check on anyone you might be concerned about.

It will still be a very warm day all across SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario. Skies will gradually clear and the warming winds pick up and move WSW at 7-17 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times.

Mostly sunny skies return this afternoon. Highs will settle near 90 degrees with a much better feel in the air. The humidity is being stripped throughout the day, setting the stage for a string of very comfortable days ahead as we head into the Father’s Day weekend.

We should warn you that the hot and steamy stuff is returning next week.

Today’s sunset is at 9:12 p.m.

Sweet relief Friday

Friday is going to be the pick day of the week with more comfortable sleeping weather, tons of sunshine, lower 80s and lower humidity into the afternoon.

It will still be a bit breezy Friday with cooler air coming in for the weekend and winds moving NW at 10-20 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times.

Father’s Day weekend weather

Saturday will start with some cooler temps in the lower 50s, followed by highs in the middle 70s. We’ll see a beautiful blend of sun and clouds.

We could see some Metro Detroit suburbs dipping down into the upper 40s both weekend mornings, though most of us will stay in the lower 50s early on.

Sunday is Juneteenth and Father’s Day, and it will be a guaranteed winner. Lows will stay cool in the upper 40s to low 50s, then more and more sunshine will help us hit highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Get out there and enjoy it!

The heat and humidity will be returning early next week with upper 80s Monday and into the 90s Tuesday and Wednesday. The computer models hint at a few scattered rain and thundershowers popping with the heat of the day both Tuesday and Wednesday, but keep your plans in place for now, knowing it’s going to be hot and humid.
