DETROIT -

Get ready for some stormy weather Tuesday. An approaching cold front is already sparking storms in parts of Western Michigan and it’s slowly on the move east.

Ccattered storms overspread the area bringing bouts of downpours and dangerous lightning.

Highs will get into the low 80s during the early afternoon and west winds will get a bit breezy and gusty.

After the actual cold front passes, it will clear out and dry out into the evening and overnight.

Wednesday morning lows will start in the comfortable 50s for most of suburban Metro Detroit.

Partly cloudy skies into the afternoon will bring high temps only into the middle 70s as we enjoy a brief cool down in SE Michigan and Southern Ontario. The cooler air sticks around for part of Thursday too as highs will struggle to hit 80 degrees and the sun will be more and more noticeable as we head through the middle and later part of this work week.

Scattered showers and storms once again swing through Friday night into early Saturday.

Those storms are well timed as the weekend looks dry and comfortable once again. Yes, this system will also drag in some cooler air keeping highs in the mid to upper 70s Saturday through Monday with mostly to partly sunny skies.
