Forecast: Dry Saturday in metro Detroit

Get ready for another stormy stretch of weather

By Paul Gross - Meteorologist

DETROIT - Scattered severe storms this afternoon produced some scattered damage, mostly resulting from strong wind gusts that may have reached 65 miles per hour in some areas.

Scattered storms are still possible through 8 p.m., with only isolated chances the rest of the evening as a cold front crosses the area sometime after midnight. Lows in the low 50s in the heat island, and in the upper 40s farther north and west. Southwest to west wind at 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy on Saturday, with highs in the low 70s. However, it's going to become quite breezy in the afternoon, so be ready for that as west winds increase to 10 to 20 mph, with higher gusts possible. Mostly clear Saturday night, with lows around 50.

Mother's Day will start dry, so if you're taking Mom out for an early tee time, I think you'll be okay. However, showers and thunderstorms become increasingly probable as the afternoon progresses, with the best chances being the farther south and west you are in the metro area. Highs in the mid 70s. Thunderstorm chances continue Sunday night, with lows near 60.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible both Monday and Tuesday, although it shouldn't rain all day on either day. Highs in the mid 70s.

Partly cloudy and cooler, with scattered afternoon showers possible on Wednesday. Highs in the low to mid 60s.

Partly cloudy on Thursday, with highs in the upper 50s.

Partly cloudy again on Friday, but shower chances return. Highs in the upper 50s.
