DETROIT - A beautiful, warm August weekend is here for Detroit and Southeast Michigan. There's a slight chance of a few isolated showers, but most areas will be dry.
Please join me on Twitter (@AndrewHumphrey) for regular weather updates.
Saturday morning will be mild in Motown with temperatures starting in the 50s and low 60s. It will be mostly sunny with dry roads for families going to Cranbrook Gardens in Bloomfield Hills, Critters Up Close in Ann Arbor or the seventh Annual Fine Art Fair in Detroit.
Sunrise is at 6:37 a.m. ET.
Saturday afternoon will be warm and partly to mostly sunny. A good pool-day, but be on guard for a few isolated showers after 3:00 p.m. ET. Most of the region will be rain-free, though. Good weather for Tigers tailgating, too. Highs will be near 85 degrees.
The Detroit Tigers host the Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park. First pitch is at 6:10 p.m. ET. Skies will be fair with only a few spotty showers that, likely, will not affect the baseball game. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s.
Sunset is at 8:40 p.m. ET.
The Perseid meteor shower will be visible away from city lights after 9:00 p.m. ET. The event is named after the constellation Perseus and occurs when Earth interacts with Comet Swift-Tuttle's tail.
Saturday night will be fair and mild. Overnight lows return to the 50s and low 60s.
Sunday will be partly sunny with isolated showers possible, again. Warm, again also, because afternoon temps will be in the low and mid-80s.
