Local 4Casters tracking storms Tuesday night

Heat and humidity will hang around Metro Detroit through the holiday, but relief might arrive sooner than we anticipated. Expect a few scattered storms, even if they're not severe. Lows will fall to only the low 70s in this muggy air. Overnight, the air will become pretty stagnant, so fog is possible in spots toward daybreak.

Pool warning

Many Metro Detroit families will head to a pool this weekend to beat the head, but with the holiday approaching, experts are sharing two important warnings.

A pool parasite is on the rise, but that's just one worry involving the water. Family gatherings around the Fourth of July are also particularly risky when it comes to drowning.


New York Mets

During an event last weekend celebrating the 1969 New York Mets, the team mistakenly pronounced a former player as dead. Jim Gosger, 76, who remains very much alive, currently lives in Port Huron, where he grew up.

He wasn't invited to the weekend celebration, but friends in New York started contacting him after a board at the event that was used to acknowledge dead players showed his name.
