DETROIT – A severe storm warning is in effect for Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties until 5 am ET on Saturday.
Welcome to Friday night, Motown.
The harsh and dull weather is marching through Detroit in southeastern Michigan late Friday afternoon and over dinner.
We must be alert to strong to severe storms and take adequate precautions. Staying indoors for the rest of the night and the rest of the night may be the best idea. Showers and storms persist, Saturday. Sunday will be sunnier. It will be very hot all weekend.
A slight to increased risk of strong to severe weather remains direct over the region. This means that there is a respectable chance of showers and thunderstorms with heavy downpours, frequent lightning strikes and damaging wind and hail. There’s even a chance for an isolated tornado, but that’s far less likely than the other dangers.
Torrential rain can cause flooding. Remember if you have to be outside, “turn around, don’t drown” when it comes to driving in stagnant water. Find an alternative route because it is difficult to know how deep the water can be. Plus, a surprisingly small amount of water can disable any vehicle.
Every time you hear thunder or see lightning, get in right away.
Friday night will be humid with stormy temperatures in the 80s and 70s of rain.
Showers and thunderstorms are still possible until midnight on Friday night. The hours of Saturday morning become calmer. It will be warm with nighttime lows near 70 ° F.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. It will be partially sunny and very warm. The maximums will be in the lower 80 or 85 ° F.
Sunday will be sunnier and hotter. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 80s. We return to good car wash days for much of the week.
On Mondays and Tuesdays they will have blue skies and will definitely feel like summer. The highs will be in the middle and the top 80 every day.
