Rain in the weekend forecast
Those hoping for sunshine this weekend may have to wait a little longer.
Expect scattered thunderstorms and rain showers in Metro Detroit on Saturday. Even Friday afternoon through the filtered sunshine, the southern portion of the region might get some rain, weather officials said.
That said, according to the National Weather Service, the temperatures on Friday will remain in the 80s and then drop to the lower 60s at night, but hover in the upper 70s Saturday during the day with some rainfall.
"Looks like a 40 percent chance right now," said Jordan Dale, of the National Weather Service office in White Lake Township, regarding the pending rain. "We do expect some more clouds for Saturday."
Even Sunday, there's a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms and partly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 70s, Dale said.
While this to some may not seem like approaching summer temperatures in early June, Dale said the normal high for this time of the year is 77 degrees and the low 57.
"We're actually right around normal for the weekend," he said.
"In the Detroit region, we're kind of caught in between two different weather systems," he said. "So high pressure to the north is funneling in some drier air and that is helping keep that precip chance to the south and west."
Dale said on Monday and into the rest of the week, the temps will be around 80 degrees and dry. And that weather pattern should continue the rest of the week, he said.
