Metro Detroit weather forecast: Chance for weekend storms

Possible storms in West Zone Saturday

DETROIT – Saturday storms will signal our transition to an early taste of fall.

Skies will remain partly cloudy Friday night. A few spots might see some fog toward daybreak, but it shouldn’t cause too many headaches. Overnight lows will be muggy, in the mid-to-upper 60s.

Saturday will remain mostly dry. Highs will hit the mid-80s again, with heat index readings over 90. There's just a slim chance that a shower or storm will pop up in the afternoon.

A much better shot arrives around 8 p.m. in our West Zone. We're not expecting widespread severe weather, but any storm could produce damaging winds. Scattered storms continue through the early morning hours of Sunday.

The cold front responsible for those storms will usher in cooler and less humid air starting Sunday. Highs will only reach the mid-70s. Our atmosphere might be just unstable enough to trigger an afternoon shower, but most of us will be dry.

Highs will get back to the mid-80s by midweek, but there’s only one chance of rain beyond this weekend in our 10 Day Forecast. Check it out.
