Catch the solar eclipse, then catch more sun
DETROIT – The sky became mostly clear overnight, so the only potential inhibitor that could block our view of the partial (for us) solar eclipse this morning is any fog that could develop. That being said, the sun will rise at 5:57 am at maximum eclipse … the moon will block a little more than half of the solar disk. This is impossible to see unless you are facing the northeast horizon where the sun will rise. If you have that good view and don’t have solar eclipse goggles or welding goggles, we’ll do our best to provide live pictures for you on Local 4 News Today. DO NOT LOOK INTO THE SUN WITHOUT ESSENTIAL EYE PROTECTION. SUNGLASSES ARE NOT ENOUGH. Just like the fireworks and the Thanksgiving Parade, we’re your best seat in the house! The solar eclipse ends at 6:37 a.m. So if you read this after that time, you have nothing more to do.
Our Thursday will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy, with only a single thunderstorm possible this afternoon. The best chance of seeing one (and it’s still a small chance) is generally west of US-23. The maximum values will again reach the mid-80s (30 degrees Celsius), with only a light wind from the east.
Today’s sunset is at 9:09 pm
Mostly clear Thursday night with lows in the mid-60s (18 to 19 degrees Celsius) and calm air.
On Friday mostly sunny to partly cloudy, in the late day or early evening I can’t rule out a few showers. Highs in the upper 80s (31 degrees Celsius).
Mostly a clear Friday evening, with lows in the mid-1960s (18 to 19 degrees Celsius).
The first half of Saturday will be nice, with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Then an approaching cold front triggers at least isolated showers and thunderstorms until late afternoon. Highs in the mid to late 80s (30 to 31 degrees Celsius).
Isolated showers and possible chances of thunderstorms continued on Saturday night with the lowest values in the mid-1960s (18 to 19 degrees Celsius).
IF there are still showers at dawn on Sunday, they will move out quickly and the day ahead should be partly cloudy to mostly sunny, with highs in the mid to late 80s (30 to 31 degrees Celsius).
Relief from the heat
There will be a pattern change early next week that will finally bring some relief from the heat (for those who don’t like the heat). Monday is going to be another warm day, then get ready for the upper 70s to low 80s (26 to 28 degrees Celsius) Tuesday and Wednesday before it warms up again by the end of the week by next weekend.
