Metro Detroit weather forecast: A spectacular weekend, then BIG weather changes

Plus: Details about this weekend's meteor shower!

By Paul Gross - Meteorologist

It’s been quite a week of weather, and the best is yet to come!  We’ve saved the warmest temperatures for the weekend, which could be our last gasp of summer-like afternoon temps for the season.

Tonight will be mostly clear once again, with lows in the low 50s (10-11 degrees Celsius).  South wind at 3 to 6 mph.

Mostly sunny and warmer on Saturday, with highs in the mid 70s (24 degrees Celsius).  South-southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph means it’ll be a bit cooler north of Lakes Erie and St. Clair, and that our warmest temperatures will be across the western half of our area.

Saturday’s sunrise is at 7:53 a.m., and Saturday’s sunset is at 6:42 p.m.  And here’s another reminder:  we go off Daylight Saving Time and return to Eastern Standard Time in two weeks…at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 5th.  So, make a note that you need to set your clocks BACK an hour before you go to bed Saturday night, November 4th.  Enjoy that extra hour of sleep!

Mostly clear Saturday night, with lows in the mid to upper 50s (14 degrees Celsius).

Mostly sunny on Sunday, with clouds starting to increase by late afternoon.  Highs in the mid 70s (24-25 degrees Celsius).

It appears that both of this weekend’s record highs of 81 degrees (27.2 degrees Celsius) aren’t in jeopardy, but we won’t be far off!

Light rain develops overnight Sunday night, with lows near 60 degrees (15 degrees Celsius).  If Monday’s temperature doesn’t drop below 60 degrees, we’ll break our October 23rd record for the day’s warmest low temperature on record.

Rain increases Monday into Monday night, and could become heavy at times.  Highs in the mid 60s (19 degrees Celsius).

Rain is likely on Tuesday, with highs in the upper 50s (14-15 degrees Celsius), and perhaps even starting to fall by mid-afternoon.

Although some light showers could start our day on Wednesday, it’s possible that they’ll move out in the morning and skies become partly cloudy during the afternoon.  Highs in the low 50s (11 degrees Celsius).

Sunshine returns Thursday into Friday, with highs Thursday in the upper 50s (14-15 degrees Celsius), and highs Friday in the low 60s (16 degrees Celsius).

At this point, I do not see any frost potential during the upcoming week.
