Memorial Day weekend to be sunny in Metro Detroit
It's going to feel a lot like summer this Memorial Day weekend, the National Weather Service said.
"It's going to be pretty nice through the stretch of the weekend," said Mike Richter, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's office in White Lake Township.
A high pressure system over the region is expected to keep sunny skies and warm temperatures around Metro Detroit, according to the agency.
A patchy fog over some ares is expected to dissipate by 10 a.m. Wednesday followed by sunny skies and a high temperature of about 83 degrees, meteorologists said. Temperatures will fall to a low of 59 degrees Wednesday night.
And for the next the six days, temperatures will be warmer than normal, reaching into the 80s. May's average monthly temperature in Metro Detroit is about 70 degrees.
However, there is a chance for rain on Saturday and on Monday, Memorial Day, the weather service said. Richter said it's hard to pinpoint how much of a chance or where the rain will fall.
"It's the standard chance you get with a summer weather pattern," he said. "It looks dry through Friday and but the weekend will be warm and humid with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. It'll have that summer time feel."
