Unlike some regions of the United States, sunny skies and warm weather are in store for Detroit this Memorial Day.
Monday will feature plenty of sunshine and will be very warm with highs approaching the mid-80s. Storms should hold off in the city, but a couple of spotty thunderstorms could arise in the afternoon for the western suburbs.
For those planning to spend a part of the holiday swimming, remember that cold water shock is a threat for anyone jumping into the lakes and unheated pools.
Tuesday will see the warm, steamy weather continue, which will set the stage for heavy, drenching thunderstorms for the city during the day. During the evening hours, a shower could pop up in spots.
By Wednesday, things will settle down a bit as partly sunny skies return. Temperatures will move back into the mid-70s, right around normal for this time of year.
It will be slightly warmer Thursday with highs in the upper 70s and times of clouds and sun.
Looking ahead to next weekend, conditions look mostly sunny and nice, with highs in the low to mid-70s Friday through Sunday.
