4Warn WeatherHappy Friday and welcome to Grand Prix weekend!

After a mild start, our Friday will heat up to around 90 degrees. Most are expected to reach 91 degrees by late this afternoon.

The day will remain dry with plenty of sunshine.

Cold front arrives Saturday

We’ll stay mostly dry throughout the weekend for the Detroit Grand Prix and Ferndale Pride. A cold front will arrive Saturday, bringing some changes with it.

Highs Saturday will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. The cold front moving through Saturday afternoon and evening will drop the temps some on Sunday.

There won’t be much moisture moving with the cold front, but we may receive a stray or isolated rain shower Saturday afternoon.

Highs on Sunday will be in the lower 80s. Expect plenty of sunshine.

Sunshine continues into the weekend with the chance of a stray shower Saturday afternoon/evening

Another cold front coming Monday

Another cold front will move in on Monday. It’ll mostly just bring a bit more cloud cover, but there will be another chance for a stray or isolated rain shower on Monday. Most of us will stay dry, though.

Highs will be a bit lower Monday, but still warm in the lower 80s.

More seasonable temps next week

We’ll have mostly sunny skies next Tuesday through Thursday. Highs will be more seasonable, rising only into the upper 70s on all three days (though some areas could reach 80 degrees).

After the minor rain chances on Saturday and Monday, it looks like our area will stay mainly dry over the next week.

Tracking tropical storm down south

June 1 is the official start of the Atlantic hurricane season, and we are already tracking one system -- though it’s looking weak as of now.

Tropical Depression Two has formed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and is bringing rainfall to the Florida peninsula. The storm is expected to remain a tropical depression, and not receive a “name,” as it moves south-southeast, heading toward the tip of Cuba. The depression is expected to weaken/degenerate into a remnant low pressure system by the end of the weekend.
