Forecast: Storms diminish this evening in metro Detroit

Hot weather is still on the horizon

DETROIT – Scattered showers and thunderstorms will diminish this evening, and I think the remainder of the night should be mostly dry.

Lows in the mid 60s, with a light and variable wind. If skies clear at all overnight, then some fog will develop.

Mostly cloudy on Wednesday with some spotty, light showers possible (most won't get one). Partial sunshine may develop by late afternoon, so keep the shades handy...you just might need them for the drive home from work! Highs in the mid 70s. Northwest wind at 8 to 13 mph. Partly cloudy Wednesday night -- a great sleeping night with lows in the upper 50s.

Partly cloudy on Thursday, with highs in the upper 70s. Partly cloudy to mostly clear Thursday night, with lows near 60.

Mostly sunny on Friday, with highs in the low 80s. Mostly clear Friday night, with lows in the low 60s.

Some computer models try to bring a potent warm front (and associated thunderstorms) through the area during the daytime hours on Saturday, while other models hold off the activity until Saturday night or Sunday. I'm not certain about this scenario yet, so we'll just have to play it by ear. As you know by now, when it comes to weekends, I'm a professional: I'll keep an eye on this and update you through the week. Highs Saturday in the mid 80s.

Partly cloudy Saturday night and becoming muggy, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows near 70.

Partly cloudy, warmer and more humid on Sunday and Monday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible. Highs in the upper 80s, with muggy overnight lows near 70.

Thunderstorm chances continue (and probably increase) on Tuesday, with highs in the mid 80s.
