Staying the 70s, could see storms


DETROIT – Thursday morning will be mild with hit and miss showers and fog. Visibility will be low, and temperatures will begin in the lower 50s.  Motorists will have to factor on extra time and be extra alert on Southeast Michigan roads and highways.  Boys and girls of all ages will need their rain gear either early in the day, later or both.  

The afternoon will be warm again with highs in the low 70s, but there is a better risk of showers and thunderstorms.  Some could contain heavy downpours, gusty winds and dangerous lightning.

Showers will continue during the evening commute and subside after midnight.  Fog will reform by Friday morning as temperatures go into the mild 50s.

Friday will almost be a repeat of Thursday with a murky start and showers that will be more widely scattered with highs near 70 degrees.

Saturday morning will have lingering rain before sunrise.  Then the afternoon will be brighter and warm.  St. Patrick's Day will be another 70 degree day.

Sunday and early next week will be sunnier, calmer and much warmer than average.  Highs continue to soar into the 70s; feeling more like May than March.
