DETROITHappy Friday!

We won’t have any issues with wet weather today, as our skies are clear. The humidity is becoming less of a factor today with even more comfortable air expected here Saturday.

There is a different feel to the air today with a nice and steady breeze pumping in from the WNW, moving at 7-17 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times.

Still, highs will land in the lower 80s around most of Metro Detroit, though our North Zone may not make it out of the upper 70s.

It’s going to be a beautiful Friday any way you slice it, although a little bumpy perhaps on some of our local lakes. Our skies will stay mostly sunny for most of today and most of the weekend ahead.

With no rain chances today and minimal rain chances next week, you may need to consider firing up the sprinkler system for the grass and garden.

Today’s sunset is at 9:12 p.m.

Sunny, cooler Father’s Day weekend

Both Saturday and Sunday mornings will be on the cool side with temps in the lower 50s in the morning, and a few neighborhoods dipping down into the upper 40s.

You will see a nice blend of sun and clouds Saturday across SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario. High temps will be in the middle 70s, and winds out of the NNW will move at 5-15 mph.

On Sunday, we’ll celebrate both Juneteenth and Father’s Day, and the weather will be ideal.

Expect sun to partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 70s with lighter winds on Sunday. One computer model brings a few scattered showers into parts of Metro Detroit late on Sunday, while most other computer model data keeps us completely dry -- which seems more likely. We will certainly keep you posted if there are any curve balls in the forecast.

Humidity returns next week

The heat and humidity will creep back in on Monday with a bit more cloud cover. Highs will be in the middle 80s or warmer.

Tuesday will be downright hot and muggy with highs into the low-to-middle 90s. Wednesday will be a similar set up with a few pop-up thundershowers possible in the heat of the afternoon both days.

It doesn’t look like any organized rain makers are heading our way any time soon, but we will keep you posted if anything changes.
