DETROIT – Welcome to Saturday, Motown!
Scattered showers are possible Saturday. It will be calmer and drier again on Sunday. Tropical storm Barry is bashing the gulf region now and will move closer to Michigan next week.
Saturday morning will be cool to mild under clear skies before dawn. Temperatures start in the low and mid 60s before breakfast. A southwest wind brings hotter, more humid air back by lunchtime. Midday temperatures reach the 80s quickly.
Sunrise is at 6:09 a.m. ET.
Saturday afternoon will be hot and humid. Highs will be in the upper 80s, and it will feel like the low 90s. Grab plenty of sun block to prevent sunburn and other damage from the sun. Drink plenty of water as well to stay hydrated and healthy.
With higher humidity comes greater instability and the chance of showers and thunderstorms. After 2 p.m. ET, scattered storms pop up with dangerous lightning and heavy downpours.
Saturday evening will have on and off showers and temps near 80 degrees. Be careful on any wet roads. Remember to stay out of the water if there is any lightning or thunder.
Sunset is at 9:09 p.m. ET.
Saturday night will be mild and becomes mostly clear. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s.
After a cold front passes, Sunday becomes sunnier and less humid again. Highs will be near 85 degrees.
Tropical Storm Barry remains a slow-moving, dangerous threat. It continues to batter the Gulf Region with heavy rain and life-threatening 3 to 6 foot storm surge. Rainfall will be measured with a yard stick before the end of the weekend.
In the Detroit Area, Monday and Tuesday become more hazy, hot and humid. Highs near 90 by Monday and in the low 90s, Tuesday. Heat indices near 95 degrees.
The remnants of "Barry" could spell more rain for Southeast Michigan, Wednesday and Thursday, with highs near 90 degrees.
