Heading into the first part of the weekend on Saturday, expect more sunshine, much like we saw to end our week on Friday.

High temperatures, still running about 10 to 15° above average, will head for the upper 60s and lower 70s by Saturday afternoon.

Mainly clear skies will be the rule overnight Saturday night and early Sunday morning; Overnight lows are dropping into the 40s and 50s for just about everyone. Another comfortable night can be expected over southeastern Michigan.

The dry weather sticks around as we head through the end of the weekend, and early next week, high pressure will continue to control the forecast. That will also allow our temperatures to soar above average, thanks to a strong southerly flow. High temperatures in the lower 70s can be expected on Sunday and Monday.

Our next chance of rain moves into the region as we go after sunset on Tuesday; this is another cold front headed our way. Rain showers will stick around as we head to the middle of the week on Wednesday, with temperatures falling back to near average into the low 60s by Wednesday afternoon.

We will keep the rain showers in the forecast early on Thursday morning; they should be before sunrise. And then, we break into filtered sunshine as we head through most of the day. High temperatures remain near average in the lower 60s by Thursday afternoon.

Dry weather sticks around as we head into the end of the week on Friday, so expect a little more cloud cover rolling into the region. Mostly cloudy skies can be expected, with highs going back into the 60s again by Friday afternoon.
