DETROIT -

The rest of the Detroit area's Labor Day Weekend will remain warm. The chance of showers and storms remains, too. Sunday appears less stormy than the holiday, Monday.

Sunday morning will have a scattered showers and storms before dawn. Sunrise is at 6:58am ET. Temperatures will be near 70 degrees, and it will still be muggy. It will dry out before noon, but much pop-up showers and a few thunderstorms develop Sunday afternoon with highs in the low 80s. Here is a rundown of some of Southeast Michigan's big events:

FORD ARTS, BEATS AND EATS
A couple of showers will add a freshness to the beginning of activities in downtown Royal Oak. By noon and shortly afterward, there will be an invigorating scent in the air with clouds and sun in the sky as temperatures rise to the low 80s. With instability still hanging in the air, pop-up showers and storms will occur between noon and 4pm. Winds will be lighter than Saturday's; 5 to 15 mph from the southwest.

DETROIT JAZZ FESTIVAL
There will be a few showers as the vendors and stage crews set up for afternoon music and activities. A little sun will glare down upon Hart Plaza and push temperatures to the low 80s. Like in Oakland County, scattered showers and a few storms develop but will be hit and miss between 2pm and 6pm. The taste of smoothies and lemonade will be all the more sweeter with protection from an umbrella or two.

ROMEO PEACH FESTIVAL
Seeing the sun after some morning rain will feel as good as the first moist bite into newly picked peach. Highs in northern Macomb County will be just above 80 degrees. The event will be on the northern edge of scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. Families strolling the streets will need umbrellas and some throat-clearing ice water to stay hydrated.

Sunday evening will be warm with mostly to partly cloudy skies and temperatures near 80 degrees.

Air conditioners will need to keep running Sunday night with lows near 70 and humid air still draped over the region. The moisture in the air will feed more storms for Labor Day. 

Labor Day, Monday, will be warmer with highs near 85 degrees. Parades beginning late-morning or noon should have no problem with rain. However, showers and thunderstorms arrive ahead of a cold front after 2pm. Some showers will get heavier in Detroit, Royal Oak and much of Southeast Michigan by 4pm and later. Downpours will cause ponding on roads, and winds will get gusty. Some small hail may develop Monday evening, too.

Tuesday will have more shower activity with highs near 80 degrees. School children can give their new rain boots and jackets a go. The rest of the week will be sunnier and remain warm. Highs will be near 80 degrees, and nighttime lows will be in the low 60s.
