Humidity and storms will continue in Detroit through the week and into the weekend.

Highs will remain in the low-to mid-80s through Friday and the chance of storms will be around in the afternoon and evening hours each day.

As the storms bring repeated downpours and saturated soil, flash flooding is not out of the question.
