Strong wind, rain expected in Metro Detroit this weekend: What to know

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Friday afternoon!

We’ll have another warm day, with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies and highs reaching the low 70s. Wind will blow from the south at 10-15 mph.

Tonight’s sunset is at 6:23 p.m.

It will be partly cloudy Friday night, with lows in the upper 50s. This could break Saturday’s record for warmest low temperature, which is 57 degrees and was set in 1994.

Rain develops Saturday afternoon

We’ll have a partly cloudy start on Saturday, then clouds will increase by the afternoon. Scattered showers will develop in the afternoon.

It’s going to become windy, with gusts between 30-40 mph during the afternoon. However, showers -- especially those with the heaviest downpours -- could produce wind gusts to 45 mph.

Showers will end Saturday evening, with the strong wind subsiding overnight. Lows will be in the mid-to-upper 40s.

Unfortunately, we won’t see nearly enough rain Saturday to put a dent in our drought conditions, and there’s more bad news coming: We’ll be dry all the way until next Friday. (Though that may be good news for some of you.)

Mild days to follow

It will be mostly sunny on Sunday, with highs in the mid-60s.

On the positive side, it’ll be another stretch of placid, pleasant November weather with plenty of sunshine Monday through Thursday. Highs will be near 60 degrees on Monday, in the mid-to-upper 50s on Tuesday, then back into the low-to-mid 60s Wednesday and Thursday.

Our next big weather-maker comes next Friday, with a much cooler temperature regime starting next weekend.
