Weather in the Detroit subway: a summer Thursday in mid-September
DETROIT – Welcome Thursday, Motown.
Thursday’s weather is almost perfect. We have sunshine, puffy clouds and warm seasonal conditions. It is cooling off well Thursday evening. Although fall is less than a week away, it will be more like summer on Friday and this weekend.
Thursday afternoons are generally sunny, warm and pleasant for all extracurricular activities and events. Temperatures are in the mid and upper 70s.
It will be mild Thursday evening with temperatures in the low 70s just before sunset and in the 60s after. Pay attention to the western sky. Right after sunset, Venus will be visible near the western horizon.
Sunset is at 7:41 p.m.
After the sun sets, future astronomers, scientists and engineers can spot Jupiter and Saturn in the southern sky near the Moon. Saturn will be just above the Moon with the brighter Jupiter to the left.
Thursday night will be fair and fresh. We can sleep safely with the windows open as the night lows hit the 1950s.
Sunrise is at 7:16 a.m.
Friday will be mostly sunny, warm and wonderful. The highs will be in the 80s.
Saturday has a chance of an early patchy downpour with a weakening cold front. It is still hot and many areas will be dry. We will have partly sunny skies and warm conditions for the Michigan football game against northern Illinois which kicks off at noon. By the end of the game, highs will be near 80 degrees in Ann Arbor and most of Southeast Michigan, including Motor City.
Sunday will be mostly sunny and warm. Highs in the 80s.
Monday will be warmer with afternoon temperatures close to 85 degrees under mostly sunny skies.
