Showers and thunderstorms should clear out Friday but could return Saturday to dampen spirits for the Dream Cruise.

For the Woodward Dream Cruise on Saturday, the weather service said there's a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

"We're looking at a slight chance for some showers Saturday," Pampreen said. "But we're not expecting a washout or anything. Hopefully, it stays dry."

She also said the probability of rain will likely change as Saturday gets closer.

The Dream Cruise is held every year between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on the third Saturday in August. 

The cruise covers a 16-mile stretch of Woodward Avenue through nine Metro Detroit communities including Berkley, Ferndale, Pontiac and Royal Oak.

It boasts being the world’s largest one-day celebration of classic car culture. The annual event attracts more than one million visitors and more than 40,000 muscle cars, street rods, custom and collector vehicles.
