DETROIT -

A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for Livingston and northern Washtenaw counties until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

After clouds and fog that started the day Monday, clouds will part into the afternoon and the humidity will be ever present once again.

So, expect a hot and humid afternoon with highs into the mid 80s feeling even warmer.

Again, it will look and feel gloomy early on by low clouds trapped here at the surface but as soon as that breaks ... summer weather will be upon us on here in SE Michigan and Southern Ontario.

A gold front moving into the area will bring rain and thundershowers in a couple of rounds Tuesday.

The first round will be early on with scattered showers and storms just before and/or during the morning commute tomorrow.

The second chance will be in the afternoon with a few storms producing gushing rains and some gusty winds. The time in between is key as models show some midday clearing and highs hitting near 90° with high humidity which is a health concern for many so take it easy!

A few lingering showers early Wednesday should clear and the air will be much more comfortable post cold front. We’ll see highs in the 70s for a few days with more wet weather by the end of the work week.
