Metro Detroit weather: Scattered strong storms possible later Friday

Storms could bring damaging winds, intense rainfall

DETROIT – UPDATE: A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for Lapeer County until 5:45 p.m.

The severe weather focus across the country remains just to our south with severe thunderstorm and even a tornado warning across northern Indiana.

The 4 Live Radar is clean as of now over southeast Michigan, but scattered strong storms are still possible Friday afternoon and through the evening.

If these storms are able to fire -- and there is still a question as to whether they will -- they could bring damaging winds and intense rainfall. The rain could be a problem in areas that saw more than one inch, and maybe as much as two inches, from Thursday night's storms.

Any wet weather will fade by midnight, leaving us partly cloudy overnight with humidity dropping. Lows will be near 60 degrees by daybreak.

Most of the weekend looks pleasant with more sunshine than clouds. It is possible to see a stray shower around midday on Saturday, but that chance is slim and looks to be focused mainly on the east side. Highs Saturday will reach the upper 70s.

On Sunday, expect partly cloudy skies with highs near 80 degrees. If a shower develops, it should be late and mainly in our North Zone. Most of us will stay dry for the entire two-day stretch. Humidity for both weekend days will be low.

Rain chances will return next week, and they're looking a little more likely than in days past. Check out the 10-day forecast for more.
