Metro Detroit weather: Nice Friday with a chance for severe thunderstorms this weekend

As we look ahead to another summer weekend forecast, some thunderstorms and active weather are a possibility, so let's get to it!

On Friday morning we wake up with some cooler temperatures and drier air. We will warm up today to around 80° with partly to mostly cloudy skies. A southern wind will saturate the atmosphere slowly throughout the day, allowing the chance for an early evening rogue rain shower. But overall, I plan on a drier Friday.

Mild and muggy overnight, as low temperatures drop to 70° and humidity creeps up. Saturday will be warm and muggy with a high temperature near 83, but the big story is the chance for some active weather. Several rounds of thunderstorms are likely on Saturday as the threat of severe weather lingers too. 

Some of the afternoon and evening storms could pack a bit of a punch, bringing strong winds and hail into the region. Timing is difficult to nail down, but if you have outdoor activities make sure you have the FOX 2 weather app handy. If severe weather warnings pop up, you will get an alert sent directly to your phone.

Saturday evening will be cooler as temperatures fall to 62° and drier air filters back in. Sunday will be in the low 70s with an abundance of sunshine.
