Metro Detroit Memorial Day Weekend Forecast: Will It Be A Washout?

It's going to be hot; that's for sure...

May 24, 2018 - 4:07 pm

DETROIT (WWJ) - It will be hot, hot, hot this holiday weekend -- but keep the umbrella handy.

Depending on the time and day, your outdoor get together could get a little wet, according to forecasters. But at least it won't be cold, says WWJ AccuWeather Meterologist John Feerick:

"It's certainly gonna feel like summer out there this weekend, that's for sure," Feerick noted, speaking live on WWJ. "Some very nice weather the next couple of days."

That said, forecasters are keeping an eye on some expected spotty showers or thunderstorms -- both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. 

On Saturday, AccuWeather is calling for plenty of heat, with partly sunny skies, and an afternoon shower or thunderstorm around. Then on Sunday, it will be just as hot, with more sun expected as well as a shower or thunderstorm possible, later in the day.

There is good news, however, if you have a barbeque planned for Monday: As of now, forecasters are calling for partly sunny skies with no rain in sight and a high of 87 degrees on Memorial Day -- although that could change as we inch closer to the day, so stay tuned to WWJ for the latest.

Meanwhile, Feerick said Friday looks fairly fantastic.

Here's the detailed AccuWeather for metro Detroit:
