DETROIT -

Saturday morning will be chilly, mostly cloudy and dry with temperatures in the 30s. It will be crisp and invigorating for anyone exercising, raking leaves or going out for firearms deer hunting season.

Saturday afternoon is filled with area activities, including a public Google Glass demonstration at MOCAD in Detroit, A Christmas Carol at Meadow Brook Music Theatre in Auburn Hills and the 3rd Classic Animation Festival in Redford. Skies will be mostly gray with a few areas of blue as the temperature rises just above average. Afternoon highs will be in the middle and upper 50s.

Stormy weather arrives in Detroit and Southeast Michigan Sunday. The morning will have the first round of showers and storms, which will be rather tame compared to the afternoon and evening. Detroit and much of the Lower Peninsula has a "slight risk" of severe weather according to the National Weather Service. More intense showers and storms will form a line and race across Southern Lower Michigan from 3pm through 10pm. Heavy downpours, strong winds and dangerous lightning are expected. It will be warm with highs near 65.

During the fourth quarter and after the game, the storms forming over Michigan and Ohio will plow through western Pennsylvania and across the Ohio Turnpike.
