Metro Detroit weather: Memorial Day weekend begins with severe weather

Saturday's highs in the low 80s

By Andrew Humphrey, CBM - Meteorologist And Station Scientist

DETROIT - Motown's Memorial Day weekend weather is interesting, to say the least. It comes right out of the gate with strong to severe storms and summer-like warmth. Then, it culminates with calmer weather on the holiday, itself. 

Please join me on Twitter (@AndrewHumphrey) for regular weather updates.

Saturday night will be cloudy and warm with on and off showers. Overnight lows will be near 60 degrees. 

Sunday will be mostly cloudy to partly sunny with scattered showers and storms. Afternoon temps reach the middle 70s. 

Welcome to Memorial Day, Monday! It becomes mostly to partly sunny, and it will be a safer day to go boating and to the beach. Although, it will be cooler for swimmers. Highs will only be in the low 70s, and commemorations will have dry conditions for families traveling to and from them. 

Tuesday becomes warmer, again, with sunshine. Highs will be in the low 80s.
