Scattered thunderstorms swept through Metro Detroit Thursday afternoon, but more storms and high temperatures remain in the forecast for the night.

Numerous storms blew through the area starting around 2 p.m. said Rachel Kulik, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

Wind gusts could reach up to 55 miles per hour. There’s a chance of small hail and torrential rainfall that could cause localized flooding, according to a hazardous outlook from the weather service.

The Metro Detroit area will reach between 83-87 degrees, but it will feel closer to the 90s, Kulik said.

Thunderstorms and warm temperatures are also in the forecast for Metro Detroit Friday.
