Wet weather develops Saturday afternoon in Metro Detroit

Highs in upper 70s

By Andrew Humphrey, CBM - Meteorologist And Station Scientist

DETROIT - There are a ton of late summer events in Detroit and Southeast Michigan. People will have their choice of raising money to cure breast cancer, going to baseball games, watching NASCAR live, celebrating African culture, admiring classic cars and hot rods and so much more. Showers are in the forecast, but the Saturday and Sunday will not be wash-outs.      

Saturday afternoon will be warm with a 5 to 15 mph southwesterly wind and highs in the upper 70s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop and move across the region starting at 3pm ET. Rain will be on and off in communities; not making for a total washout for the African World Festival nor for the Detroit Tigers' game against the Seattle Mariners, which begins at 7:08pm ET.

Saturday evening will have showers and storms with some containing heavy downpours. Families always need to be cautious whenever there is lightning or when ponding occurs on roads. Dream Cruisers need to make sure they put the tops back up on the convertibles, and baseball fans will need their ponchos and accept the possibility of a stoppage or two during the game at Comerica Park.

Saturday night will be drier with mostly cloudy skies and lows in the low and middle 60s.

Sunday will have a chance of scattered showers and storms, too. Highs will be in the middle and upper 70s. Again, there will be times for outdoor events to occur with dry conditions. The Local4Casters app is an excellent tool for tracking any additional wet weather.

A low pressure system will try to form over the Great Lakes early next week. This means clouds will hang around with temperatures in the middle 70s Monday and Tuesday. Waves of light and moderate showers are possible, again.
