Metro Detroit weather forecast: Humid, but dry Wednesday


DETROIT – Seems like we've been waiting for a day like this for weeks.

Temperatures are very close to what we ended up with yesterday, but with sunshine, low humidity and no threat of rain, it's a HUGE improvement. We'll have very comfortable sleeping weather tonight, keeping humidity low and watching temperatures drop to around 60 degrees.

Wednesday forecast:

Tomorrow, we'll see the humidity increase a bit, but other than a stray late sprinkle, we should stay dry. Highs will be a bit cooler in the mid 70s.

Thursday forecast:

Thursday we'll be back watching for thunderstorms in the afternoon. Some of those storms could be strong, too.

Friday forecast:

Dry conditions return for the start of GM River Days on Friday. It will be mostly sunny with a high in the mid 70s.

Then we'll start watching Tropical Storm Bill. It made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Texas earlier today. And it's already bringing heavy rain to Houston and Galveston. Bill will weaken but as it heads northeast, it *could* be a player in our weekend forecast. Right now it looks like the rain from Bill should stay just south of us but we'll likely see plenty of clouds from the remnants of that storm by Saturday.

Check the extended forecast for details on Father's Day Sunday and the Ford Fireworks on Monday.
