DETROIT – Welcome to Sunday, Motown.

The second half of the weekend feels like the first. It is bright and warming up quickly.

The atmosphere remains unstable, so as the temperature rises the chance of showers and thunderstorms increases. There is a greater chance of showers and storms tonight and early tomorrow.

The lunar eclipse will be difficult to see. Lower temps arrive tomorrow and mid-week. Then, it becomes warmer again by the end of this week.

Sunday afternoon will be very warm and mostly partly sunny. There is a chance of isolated showers and storms. After sunset, there is a better chance of more widespread wet and stormy weather.

Highs will be in the low 80s to near 85 degrees.

There is a “Marginal Risk” of strong to severe weather with heavy downpours, frequent lightning and damaging wind and hail.

Here is your storm timeline:

  • 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. - Isolated showers and thunderstorms.
  • 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. - Scattered showers and thunderstorms; a little more widespread.
  • 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. - Widespread showers and thunderstorms.

Stormy weather continues through the midnight hour and during the early hours of Monday.

A total lunar eclipse will occur late Sunday night into early Monday morning. It will be mostly cloudy and stormy, so the event will be tough to witness. Remember, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon.

The Earth’s shadow travels over the Moon, and the bending light arriving at the Moon gives it a reddish-brown glow. This is how the nickname Blood Moon originated.
