Storms possible for Sunday, but Memorial Day to be dry

The Detroit News

Anyone outside enjoying the Memorial Day weekend should be prepared for the possibility of strong storms Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

The weather will remain warm and humid throughout the day Sunday, with highs in the mid-80s. But thunderstorms could roll through much of Southeast Michigan during the afternoon and evening hours, said Dan Thompson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

A hot, muggy and rainy weekend hopefully will clear up in time for Memorial Day picnics and pool parties, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

People outside planting or barbecuing should prepare themselves for scattered showers between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., he said.

"Up north it's going to be pretty much the same story," he said. "We're going to have a cold front moving through, so we're looking at scattered thunderstorms and showers through the afternoon."

Thompson said any showers should clear up overnight, with temperatures falling to the low-60s.

Memorial Day should bring dry weather that is a little less humid, but temperatures will still hover around the mid-80s. We should fall well below the record high in the low-90s, said Thompson.

The rest of the week will remain warm, with the next chance of rain coming on Wednesday and Tuesday. Cooler temperatures will be coming next weekend, where the highs should only come to the low-to-mid-70s.
