Metro Detroit weather: Severe storm threat looms

DETROIT – Welcome to Juneteenth and Saturday, Motown.

Higher humidity is back and it certainly can be felt this morning and this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast with this instability present. It becomes warmer on this holiday and hotter tomorrow for Father’s Day.

The National Weather Service is still placing a Marginal Risk of strong to severe storms in Southeast Michigan. That said, the scattered showers and storms marching across the region are not becoming widespread and are, in fact, gradually diminishing as they migrate from Central Michigan through the Southeast Michigan.

It will be warm enough for trips to and from Juneteenth commemorations, events and activities. Same for trips to the pool or a beach. Remember, though, to have a “plan B” to duck indoors quickly on the off-chance that storm activity becomes heavier.

Saturday evening will have showers and thunderstorms early. Then, closer to night fall, wet weather shrinks and departs. Temperatures will be in the 70s.

Sunset is at 9:13 p.m. ET.

Saturday night will be partly cloudy and mild. Overnight lows will be in the low 60s.

Happy Father’s Day, Sunday! It will be sunnier. There is a lower chance of showers and thunderstorms, but it remains very warm to hot and quite humid. Highs will be in the middle and upper 80s. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially after 2 p.m.

Astronomical summer begins with the summer solstice at 11:31 p.m. Sunday.

Stormy, soggy weather becomes more likely, again, Monday. Highs will be in the low 80s. The morning will be wetter than the afternoon as a cold front approaches and passes through the region.

We can air our domiciles out Tuesday and Wednesday. Each day will have blue skies during the day and starry skies at night. Highs will be near 70 degrees (about 10 degrees below average), Tuesday, and in the middle and upper 70s, Wednesday.

Thursday will be mostly sunny and warmer. Highs will be near 85 degrees.

Friday will be very warm and humid. Afternoon temps will be near 85 degrees with scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
