DETROIT – After an active Wednesday afternoon, we look to dry out overnight as temperatures drop into the lower 70s. The exception will perhaps be a lone shower or two that tries to swing through from the west. These showers are fading during the overnight hours, but we can’t completely rule out one hanging on.


Your Thursday starts off with more sunshine, but a few daytime clouds are expected during the afternoon. It’s going to be hot again with highs near 90 degrees, but with the humidity, it will feel a couple of degrees warmer. Some high-resolution models also squeeze out a shower or two later in the afternoon, but these are not widespread. In fact, most of us, if not all of us, look to stay dry Thursday.

Weekend forecast

A better chance for showers and storms returns this weekend, with the best chances coming Sunday. Saturday, we’re anticipating a few showers, but it won’t be an all-day wash-out type event.

Sunday, there’s a much better chance for thunderstorms, some of which could be strong to severe.

Beyond that, we get a little bit of relief from the heat. Highs are in the 90s through Saturday, but early next week, we “cool” a bit with highs in the lower to middle 80s.
