DETROIT – Good Friday morning!
We have to take the good with the bad, and today is another tally on the good side, making for a pretty nice weather week overall here in Metro Detroit!
We are waking up with more of that pleasant and cooler air, with temperatures starting in the middle 50s outside your door under mostly clear skies. The one minor weather nuisance this morning is that patchy fog like we’ve seen the last couple of mornings, so just watch out in those rural and hilly areas.
If you plan on being out all day, you may need a light jacket or sweatshirt this morning but you’ll be able to rock those shorts as we warm up today.
Today’s sunrise is at 7:07 a.m.
A few wispy clouds through the mid-morning will give way to mostly sunny skies across Metro Detroit this afternoon.
It will be just a smidge warmer than yesterday. Look for highs in the middle 80s with light winds moving SE at 5-10 mph and a barely noticeable increase in humidity.
There will be no problems with high school football games, other than warm temps for those players on the field and a little sunshine smacking parts of the bleachers for the first half. Temperatures will cool slowly into the 70s throughout the evening before we see a little more cloud cover move into our area overnight.
Tonight’s sunset is at 7:53 p.m.
Comfortable conditions Saturday
We will see increasing clouds on Saturday as skies become only partly sunny. Right now, our Saturday looks dry.
The clouds will filter out some sunshine, but we do have a warmer breeze drawing in more warmth and humidity. Look for highs in the lower to middle 80s with mostly light winds moving SSE at 5-12 mph.
Conditions will be nice for the 4 p.m. Michigan State football game in East Lansing. Michigan hosts Hawaii at 8 p.m., and, although it will become cloudier, we should keep things dry all evening. Temps will only dip into the middle 70s during that game.
Showers will like be scattered and will move in overnight Saturday into early Sunday.
Scattered showers Sunday
Scattered rain showers will be swirling around Metro Detroit early Sunday, which means there’s a chance those tailgating for the Lions game should plan on some kind of cover from the rain.
We may get lucky with limited showers in the morning, as the number and coverage of showers will increase in the middle afternoon. Temperatures will rise into the middle to upper 70s under mostly cloudy skies. Your outdoor plans this weekend will be safer and drier on Saturday.
Rain lasts into next week
The storm bringing rain and isolated thundershowers Sunday will sit and spin just south of us Sunday, Monday and Tuesday before taking off Wednesday.
This will bring several rounds of rain and isolated thundershowers into Metro Detroit on Monday. Morning temps will be in the 60s and afternoon highs only in the low to middle 70s.
Right now, computer models show signs of lighter and fewer showers on Tuesday before the wet weather wraps up. We will keep you posted if there are any changes.
We may get back into the 80s Wednesday and Thursday of next week with more sunshine.
