Metro Detroit weather: Thunderstorm chances late Thursday

Thunderstorms firing across northern lower Michigan

DETROIT – Thunderstorms are firing across northern lower Michigan Thursday afternoon. As these storms move south, there's a slight chance we could see one in our North Zone this evening. Chances are a bit better (but still not likely) for an overnight thunderstorm in the remainder of the area. Overnight lows will fall to the mid- and upper 60s.

Friday, any lingering showers or storms should be gone by sunrise. Then we'll remain dry until the afternoon.  A cold front will push in later, triggering a few thunderstorms. Again, not everyone will see them. Highs will still get to the mid-80s in the afternoon.

Any humidity increase tonight and Friday will be taken care of by the cold front, rewarding us with a beautiful weekend. High temperatures will stop in the mid- and upper 70s. Expect plenty of sunshine until a few thunderstorms pop late on Sunday.

Next week starts out with rain and storm chances for three of our first four days. Temperatures will be close to normal during what is typically our hottest week of the year.
