Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties are under a heat advisory until 10 p.m. Sunday.

Heat index values of 95°-100° are expected through the weekend. The combination of warm muggy nights and multiple consecutive days of heat indices over 90 will lead to increased heat stress in Metro Detroit.

The affects of the heat will be most notable in the more urbanized areas of Southeast Oakland, Southern Macomb and much of Wayne County, especially in the City of Detroit and neighboring communities.

We will keep a mixture of clouds and stars into the forecast overnight tonight, it will be very warm and very humid overnight tonight. We will also remain dry overnight as lows drop into the low to mid 70s for everyone.

The effects of the heat will be most notable in the more urbanized areas of Southeast Oakland, Southern Macomb and much of Wayne County, especially in the City of Detroit and neighboring communities.

Overnight Saturday

We will keep a mixture of clouds and stars into the forecast overnight tonight, it will be very warm and very humid overnight tonight. We will also remain dry overnight as lows drop into the low to mid 70s for everyone.

End of weekend

Changes in the forecast come as we head into the end of the weekend into early next week. We’ve got another hot and humid day on the way as we work into our Sunday.

High temperatures heading back into the upper 80s and lower 90s into the afternoon, but as a cold front works into the region, we will bring the chance of showers and thunderstorms moving in starting in the mid to late afternoon hours and continuing for the rest of the day. As of right now, we are not looking at the potential of any severe weather.

Next week

Showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast as we head into early next week on Monday, as our cold front continues to press on through the region. High temperatures running a few degrees cooler as we only had into the 80s by Monday afternoon.

Some storms could produce heavy rainfall throughout the day on Monday. Overall, we are looking at 0.50″ to 1.00″ for most of the region, but some areas could see more than this that see repeated rounds of heavy rainfall.

Dry weather works into the region as we head into the middle of next week. Will keep the chance of an isolated shower into the forecast as we head into our Tuesday, but most places will stay dry before high pressure builds into the region and brings plenty of sunshine for the second half of next week, but it comes with a cool down, as we look for temperatures to make it into the lower 80s by the end of next week.
