Metro Detroit weather: Some thunderstorms likely as temps again hit 90s

The heat continues without much overnight relief as our early morning temps are clocking in near 80° with 90 set for the afternoon.

High and mid-clouds will obscure the sun at times today and storms are likely to develop this afternoon on an isolated or scattered basis. Check out FOX Futurecast this afternoon. 

Severe weather isn't likely, but an isolated stronger to severe wind gust remains possible. Rain totals will be chaotic, many on the low end, but torrential rain with any storms that form will leave localized areas picking up an inch or so. 

We'll hold onto afternoon storm chances Thursday and Friday as the heat doesn't fade in a major way through the week. 

Temps stay up through Saturday with a cold front dropping our temps by Monday.
