The high Saturday is expected to reach 74 degrees under mostly sunny skies, a stark contrast to last year's stormy weather.

We know it's hard to accurately predict the weather in Michigan, but it looks like the stars are aligning in favor of this year's Woodward Dream Cruise.

According to the National Weather Service, the high Saturday is expected to reach 74 degrees under mostly sunny skies – perfect cruising weather.

That forecast is in stark contrast to , which was nearly rained out halfway through by a sudden and severe line of thunderstorms.

In total, 60,000 DTE customers throughout Metro Detroit lost power that fateful Dream Cruise Saturday, with dozens of trees and power lines knocked down by 60-mile-per-hour winds.

In response, the Woodward Dream Cruise was shut down early, though cruisers returned to the streets after the skies cleared.

, who went home when it started to rain, came back later to watch the cruise only to discover it had been called off early.

“Oh, that's a bummer,” Mark Jenson said. “I feel worse for the people who spent their year bringing their cars out here.”

Despite the sunny forecast Saturday, rain is still in the cards for the weekend. The National Weather Service says there's a 30 percent chance of showers Sunday afternoon.
