Metro Detroit weather: Another chance for severe storms later today

By Brandon Roux - Meteorologist, Segment Reporter/Producer

DETROIT - The next round of storms is on the way this afternoon in Metro Detroit.

  • Line of storms moved through Southeast Michigan earlier this morning.
  • The second round is of more concern as the Storm Prediction Center has placed SE Lower Michigan and Southern Ontario in a Marginal Risk for severe storms this afternoon.

A warm and muggy afternoon in the upper 70s to low 80s with a cold front moving toward Metro Detroit means a chance for wicked weather this afternoon.

We should all be on guard after noon with the best potential for scattered strong storms between 2pm and 6pm.

These storm cells will produce heavy downpours and lightning and a few may contain damaging winds and 1" size hail. 

Thursday forecast

The weather pattern is much more quiet Thursday as the heat and humidity take a small step back. We will wake to temps in the 50s and finish strong with sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 70s tomorrow under partly cloudy skies. Friday looks very similar although we will be warming up heading into the weekend. Look for mostly sunshine Friday and highs around 80°F once again.

Friday and beyond

The weekend looks picture perfect for your weddings and graduation parties with no storms expected Saturday or Sunday.  Saturday will be a nice mix of sun and clouds with highs near 80°F and Sunday will be very similar except for the increase in high clouds late in the day. Those clouds will lead to some wet weather Monday as we head back to work and school. Stay tuned!
