And If you’re getting an early start on your weekend, Thursday promises to be nice as well, with a high of 84 and sunny conditions after some overnight fog clears out around 9 a.m.

Unfortunately, those with asthma or other respiratory conditions may need to take precautions Thursday. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has declared Thursday an Ozone Action Day. Pollutants are expected to be in the unhealthy range for sensitive individuals, the National Weather Service said.

The high Friday is expected to be 84 with a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m. Otherwise expect partly sunny conditions. The chance of rain is 40 percent.

A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms will persist Saturday with a high near 81.

Weather forecasters predict a high of 89 degrees Sunday under mostly sunny skies. The chance of showers and thunderstorms returns for the holiday Monday with a high near 88.

Temperatures will be a bit cooler when the workweek begins Tuesday. The Weather Service predicts a high of 76 under partly sunny skies. The threat of showers and thunderstorms will persist.
