DETROIT – It’s finally Friday! Happy weekend, everyone!
We are off to a solid start with some cloud cover coming and going, keeping Metro Detroit temps slightly warmer to start. Friday morning temperatures start in the middle 30s to near 40 degrees as you get closer to the city.
We have no moisture leaking from these morning clouds, making for a smooth morning commute with some beautiful colors in the skies as the sun rises.
Daylight Saving Time ends next weekend, the first Sunday in November, and we’ll “fall back” one hour -- which means our sunrise will be back closer to 7 a.m. in about 10 days.
Today’s sunrise is at 8:02 a.m.
Sky conditions will be trending in the right direction through the morning into this afternoon, allowing more and more sunshine for us all to enjoy.
High temperatures today will land in the upper 50s as skies become mostly sunny. Light winds will move E at 5-10 mph. The average high temperature for us here in Metro Detroit at the end of October is 57 degrees, which is what we will end up with today.
You will probably want to go with a sweatshirt and light jacket for outdoor evening plans like high school football games, as temps will eventually cool into the upper 40s by 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.
Tonight’s sunset is at 6:32 p.m.
Beautiful rivalry weather
Have you heard about some important football game on Saturday? Something to do with Paul Bunyan? Yes, it’s rivalry Saturday in Michigan and the weather will be great as Michigan State University heads to the University of Michigan for the battle at the Big House.
We will enjoy morning temps near 40 degrees before highs hit the lower 60s in the afternoon under mostly sunny skies. The big game kicks off at 7:30 p.m., and temps will slowly dip back down into the middle 50s during the game (although I imagine there will be some body heat flowing in the stands as the players battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy). Good luck and be safe, everyone!
Sunday will bring more clouds ahead of a rain maker working its way through the middle of the country. Most of that moisture will stay to our south, making our skies mostly cloudy with highs near 60 degrees. Rain showers are more likely after 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.
Tracking Halloween rain
We should have showers overnight into Halloween morning, but we’re hoping things change so we can enjoy those elementary school costume parades. Still, we should anticipate some rain around.
The computer model data points to rain showers through the morning and fading through the afternoon. Skies will stay spooky and overcast. High temperatures will hit the upper 50s to lower 60s.
We should get into more sunshine and middle 60s for highs for a few days starting Tuesday of next week.
