Rain will sweep into southeastern Michigan early Thursday but is expected to leave before Thursday night’s game between the Tigers and Red Sox, which is slated to begin at 8:07 p.m.
“Rain is on its way from Indiana and Illinois but should only stick around for three or four hours,” National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Considine said. “It should leave the area by 4 or 5 p.m. The high temp will only be in the mid-50s dropping to about 50 degrees around game time.”
According to Considine, Friday is expected to be a “pretty nice day” with partly sunny skies through the afternoon and into the evening.
“Friday will be the nicest day in the upcoming seven-day forecast,” Considine said. “The high Friday will be about 62. The night time low for Friday will be in the mid-40s, perfect fireplace weather.”
