Metro Detroit weather: Severe threat is low for rest of Wednesday

DETROIT – Severe threat is low for the rest of the day, but not completely gone. 

We're still monitoring areas to the southwest for possible storm development over the next few hours. 

Temperatures have hit 80 degrees in many locations and humidity has moved in too. For the rest of the afternoon and evening, skies will be partly cloudy. A few isolated storms are still possible, but most of us should stay dry.  Any storms that pop up could pack damaging winds and hail. We'll stay in the humid 70s through the evening and drop to an overnight low in the mid-to-upper 60s.

A wave moving through overnight will bring thunderstorms closer to sunrise on Thursday. Those storms should not be severe. But the rain will be welcome since many of us haven't had measurable precipitation in a week and a half!  Expect scattered thunderstorms throughout the day. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 70s.

Then a stretch of sunny and unseasonably warm weather moves in as we move to closer to summer, which starts on Monday evening.  Highs will be in the mid 80s to 90 degrees through Monday. 

Our next chance of rain doesn't arrive until Tuesday morning.
