September 22, 2018 - 10:05 am

DETROIT (WWJ) - Are you ready for fall?

The season doesn't officially begin until 9:54 p.m. Saturday, but cool weather has already settled across southeast Michigan. 

"It sure feels like fall outside here this morning with this breeze and the cooler temperatures," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Dean DeVore. "As we go through the day we'll see temperatures going up to a high of just 66 with clouds breaking for some sunshine. It looks like a pretty sunny afternoon."

Even though we'll have a sunny Saturday, temperatures are going to drop overnight

"Everybody's going to be in the 40s tonight," said DeVore. "So make sure that you're bundled up a little bit, maybe get that extra blanket out of the closet."

The sunshine returns Sunday and will mostly hang around all week, except on Tuesday when we could see some rain. 

Here's a look at the forecast from the WWJ Newsradio 950 weather team:
