DETROIT – Good Tuesday afternoon!
We had a couple of waves of wild weather through Metro Detroit late Monday and earlier this morning, bringing widespread wind damage and some minor flooding.
Skies will be partly cloudy at lunchtime with temperatures into the upper 70s. A nice breeze will move W at 15 mph, gusting to 20-25 mph at times, especially in the afternoon.
We will transition nicely into mostly sunny skies in the late afternoon as highs hit the lower 80s. The humidity will take a step back today, making things a little more comfortable.
The winds will shift to the northwest later tonight, bringing in dry and cooler air, setting us up for some great sleeping weather as we head into Wednesday morning.
Tonight’s sunset is at 8:10 p.m.
Skies clear up
We will wake up to temperatures in the middle and upper 50s Wednesday morning under crystal clear skies. Wednesday afternoon highs will hang in the upper 70s to lower 80s with even lower humidity.
Thursday will start with another morning in the 50s with barely a cloud in the sky over Pure Michigan. Highs likely won’t get out of the middle and upper 70s under beautiful sunshine for the rest of the day.
Guess what? Friday will be another absolute beauty of day around here with morning lows in the 50s and afternoon highs getting back to 80 degrees under a nice mix of sun and clouds.
Labor Day weekend forecast
The holiday weekend is going to be very nice.
We will get the warmest of the weekend on Saturday, as highs take off into the middle and upper 80s.
There will be a weak cold front moving through Saturday night and/or Sunday morning, bringing a slight chance for a shower during that timeframe.
Sunday afternoon highs will be in the lower to middle 80s as skies go from mostly to partly cloudy through the afternoon.
Monday is Labor Day and right now, the computer model data doesn’t show any signs of trouble as we enjoy one last summer holiday. We will keep you posted if any wet weather comes into the mix for this special weekend ahead.
