Metro Detroit weather: Latest on severe storm chances

Small window for thunderstorms to develop


DETROIT – As rain exits Thursday afternoon, clouds will start to break, beginning in our West Zone.

There's a small window where thunderstorms might develop, but it's definitely not a slam dunk. If storms fire, they only have a few hours in which the severe ingredients will be in place. We're still in the slight risk category for severe weather through early evening.

Otherwise, skies will become partly cloudy Thursday night. Lows will drop to the upper 60s. Humidity will begin to drop, but it will still be muggy through the night.

Friday will be mainly cloudy, breezy and less humid. Highs will stay in the 70s. A stray sprinkle is possible, but most of us will stay dry.

Saturday will bring better rain chances and possibly some thunder, although the storms won't be strong. Highs will get to 80 degrees with noticeable humidity.

On Sunday, expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid-80s.

Mostly sunny skies will continue into Monday for the solar eclipse. Go to our eclipse page on ClickOnDetroit.com for everything you need to enjoy this spectacular celestial event.
