Near record-high heat Friday, storms possible

Highs in the lows 80s


DETROIT – Get ready for another warm day with near record heat and a chance for a few storms.

Most of Friday will be dry and pleasant but, a very slow moving cool front will approach the area late Friday bringing scattered storm chances into the late afternoon and evening hours. Highs will be in the low 80s with partly cloudy skies becoming mostly cloudy into the afternoon. We are under NO risk for severe weather, but we need to watch out for a few isolated storm cells developing packing a punch. Most of the storms come in overnight and into Saturday. So, if you have outdoor plans tonight including the Tigers Game, don't cancel your plans but prepare for a possible weather delay.

The weekend will be hit and miss with rain and thundershowers. Saturday will be the wetter of the weekend days with scattered storms and highs reaching for 80 degrees. Mother's Day will be mostly cloudy with mid 70s and a decent chance for a shower or two. It's a big weekend, so we will keep updating you on air and online ClickOnDetroit.com.

A stronger cold front rolls into SE Lower Michigan on Monday bringing heavier showers and storms. That front will set up a cooler week next week mainly in the 60s.
