Metro Detroit weather: Chance of rain every day this week

It was a attractive start to the work week with a lot of sunshine and temperatures back up into the lower and mid 50s away from the lake, but this morning it is a bit of a different story.

In fact, it appears that the island of Ireland will be warmer than that of top Summer holiday destinations such as Barcelona, Lanzarote, Ibiza and Athens.

The highest temperature recorded over an Easter weekend has been reached four times, with Heathrow (London), Mildenhall (Suffolk) and Wisley (Surrey) recording 27.8 Celsius in 1949 and once again in Wisley in 2011.

According to its forecast, the upcoming long weekend - Easter Weekend - will see sky-scraping temperatures.

Saturday is a soggy day with breezy conditions and mild temperatures. Even though we'll begin Passover and Good Friday with 50-degree lows, highs will only rise to the mid-60s.

Department of Justice is unlikely to approve the planned merger between T-Mobile and Sprint as it's now structured. T-Mobile US and Sprint are facing potential rejection of their proposed merger at the US Department of Justice.

On Saturday, temperatures will be in the mid-50s and will rise just above 60 degrees Sunday. We should stay dry through Saturday and Easter Sunday, too, but with cooler temperatures.

"Come inland and it will be 13 to 18 degrees and those temperatures are only going to get higher".

"As we go through the weekend, 19 degrees in Belfast and maybe 25 degrees in parts of the southeast".

For those of you dreaming of heading to the beach this long weekend, we highly suggest you do so while you can!

Steve Willington continued: "It now looks like more changeable and cooler weather will arrive from the northwest from Easter Sunday, however there remains the chance that southeastern parts of the country could remain warm and settled into Easter Monday".
