Spotty morning showers clear for beautiful Friday, weekend in Metro Detroit

Slight rain chance this weekend

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITHappy Friday!

A slow-moving frontal boundary will linger around SE lower Michigan and Southern Ontario through the lunch hour, keeping the chance for a few hit-or-miss showers before we get into calmer conditions.

Skies will go from mostly cloudy to partly sunny through the middle and later afternoon hours on this Finally Friday, with highs a couple of degrees north and south of 80 degrees. Our northern suburbs may not get out of the upper 70s, while many closer to Detroit will land in the lower 80s with a light wind moving NNW at 5-10 mph.

Tonight’s sunset is at 8:17 p.m.

Nice weekend with slight rain chance

Cooler air will be pumping into Metro Detroit to start the weekend as we awake to temperatures in the 50s. That is “windows open” kind of stuff, if you’re comfortable doing so.

We will see mostly sunny skies all day Saturday with low humidity. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s with a nice breeze moving ENE at 5-10 mph.

Sunday will become both warmer and muggier, making for a better pool or beach day, while Saturday may be more comfortable for that yard work. I’m just trying to help.

Sunday morning temps will be pleasant in the 50s to low 60s before that heat starts pouring in. We’ll have a sunny start to Sunday with increasing clouds as temps hit the middle to upper 80s.

It looks like a dry weekend around Metro Detroit, but you just cannot rule out an isolated pop-up storm in the peak heat of Sunday afternoon.

Shower chances Monday

We will be tracking a little trouble as we begin next week with a weak weather disturbance rolling in from the west. A few morning showers are possible before some midday clearing allows our highs to hit the upper 80s on Monday. A better chance for scattered rain and thundershowers arrives after 2 p.m.

Monday showers will be followed by a second wave of showers on Tuesday, which may be only a nuisance for us during the morning hours. Some of the computer models show improving conditions Tuesday afternoon and into the middle of next week with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
