A very active pattern, which is expected to bring showers and thunderstorms, will remain in the Detroit area through the weekend.

While there will not be a severe weather threat, Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said flooding could be an issue.

Samuhel said that all of the days will not be a complete washout, but there is a good chance for at least an hour or two of rain each day.

Highs will stay in the low to mid-80s through Sunday, which is pretty close to normal for this time of year and it will feel pretty humid. Overnight lows will remain in the upper 60s through the weekend.
