Showers and storms will be moving through Metro Detroit over the next 48 hours due to a slow moving boundary, which will eventually lift as a warm front. Most of the storms today will be "sun driven", meaning once the sun sets the coverage of storms will diminish as well. Not much of an air mass change tonight and Monday as the "Muggy Meter" remains high keeping temps in the 70s.

Monday will be another hot one with highs in the upper 80s with partly cloudy skies for the first part of the day. During the drive home, storms will begin to flare up again due to an approaching cold front. There will be enough lift in the atmosphere along with high moisture content to produce some heavy rain. Widespread severe weather is not expected but a few storms could turn severe.

After Monday's storms, a drier & cooler air mass will follow bringing nights in the 50s and highs struggling to reach 80° by the middle of next week.
