Saturday afternoon will be hot and humid. Highs will be in the upper 80s, and it will feel like the low 90s. Grab plenty of sun block to prevent sunburn and other damage from the sun. Drink plenty of water, as well, to stay hydrated and healthy. 

With higher humidity comes greater instability and the chance of showers and thunderstorms. After 2 p.m. ET, scattered storms pop up with dangerous lightning and heavy downpours.

Saturday evening will have on and off showers and temperatures near 80 degrees. Be careful on any wet roads. Remember to stay out of the water if there's any lightning or thunder.

Sunset is at 9:09 p.m. ET.

Saturday night will be mild and becomes mostly clear. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s.

After a cold front passes, Sunday becomes sunnier and less humid again. Highs will be near 85 degrees. It will be a perfect day to feel the sand between your toes or take in the scent of freshly cut grass while kicking the soccer ball around with your kids.

"Barry"

Tropical Storm Barry remains a slow-moving, dangerous threat. It continue to batter the Gulf Region with heavy rain and life-threatening 3 to 6 foot storm surge. Rainfall will be measured with a yard stick before the end of the weekend.

In the Detroit Area, Monday and Tuesday become more hazy, hot and humid. Highs near 90 by Monday and in the low 90s, Tuesday. Heat indices near 95 degrees.

The remnants of "Barry" could spell more rain for Southeast Michigan, Wednesday and Thursday, with highs near 90 degrees.
