DETROIT – Showers and storms from Thursday are ending overnight, but fog will likely develop and could be dense in spots. Temperatures during the overnight will bottom out in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Weekend forecast

While we are expecting more dry time Friday and Saturday, an isolated pop-up shower or two remains possible on both days during the afternoon. We’ll be hot enough that a couple may pop, but if they do, they would be few and far between. It’s looking like most of us will be dry on Friday and Saturday. Both days will be hot and muggy.

Highs Friday will be in the middle 80s, but it will feel closer to 90 with the humidity. Saturday is a notch hotter, with highs near 90 and heat index values around the middle 90s.

Sunday is when we reintroduce the chance for showers and storms, mainly later in the day. Models have been somewhat inconsistent on the timing of this next system over the last few days but still, paint some rain over the area both Sunday and Monday.

Next week

At this time, it looks like Monday is the better chance for showers and storms.

Following that early week system, we finally get a push of drier air, and that means more pleasant weather returns starting Tuesday.
