DETROIT – A pleasant Thursday is going in the books, and we look ahead to what should be a great weekend first, though we have to get through a few showers for parts of your Friday.

Clouds will be on the increase overnight as temperatures drop into the middle 60s, a touch above normal for this time of the year.


After a dry start to the day, rain moves in later in the morning on Friday. While most of what we see is just light to moderate rain, there could be a few pockets of heavier rain, perhaps even a rumble of thunder. The severe threat though Friday is slim to none. Showers continue through the afternoon but should wrap up as we head into the evening hours.

Weekend forecast

The weekend looks great! More sunshine, lower humidity, and pleasant temperatures all piecing together two very pleasant days. Highs will be in the lower 80s both Saturday and Sunday.

Next week forecast

Changes come next week as hotter temperatures, higher humidity, and rain are all set to return. Shower chances look best Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. On top of that the humidity will make the middle-80-degree high temperatures feel more like the 90s.
