Metro Detroit weather forecast: 'The Calm Before the Warm'
Enjoy these comfortable days and nights before the heat arrives
Gorgeous sunshine, pleasant temperatures, and low humidity made for a spectacular Hump Day, and we’ll do it all over again on Thursday. By the end of the weekend, however, many of you will be longing for these “good ol’ days”…
Wednesday night will be mostly clear and very comfortable…open the windows and enjoy some terrific sleeping weather. Lows in the mid 50s (13 degrees Celsius). Sunset is at 9:08 p.m.
Mostly sunny and a little warmer on Thursday, with highs in the mid to upper 70s (25 degrees Celsius). A light east wind will help the standard lake breeze develop during the afternoon, so shoreline areas near the big lakes will be cooler. Thursday’s sunrise is at 5:57 a.m., and Thursday’s sunset is at 9:08 p.m.
Mostly clear Thursday night, with lows in the mid 50s (14 degrees Celsius).
Partly cloudy Friday morning, then becoming mostly cloudy at some point during the afternoon with scattered showers and thunderstorms popping up. Not everybody will necessarily get a shower or storm, but all of us are at risk. Highs in the mid 70s (24 degrees Celsius). I’ve already received an e-mail today about whether or not to rent a tent Friday evening for a graduation party, and I’ll tell you what I told him: it’s always better to err on the side of being prepared…I would get the tent and rather be safe than sorry. Even if you don’t get any rain, you’ll know that you were prepared in case it did rain, which takes that stress off of you…and is much better than the opposite scenario (not renting a tent, and then rain developing over your party).
Partly cloudy Friday night, with lows in the low 60s (17 degrees Celsius).
Partly cloudy and hot on Saturday, with highs in the mid 80s (30 degrees Celsius).
Mostly clear Saturday night, with lows in the mid to upper 60s (19-20 degrees Celsius).
Mostly sunny and hot Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with highs generally around 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius), and overnight lows generally around 70 degrees (21 degrees Celsius).
We stay hot on Wednesday, with highs in the upper 80s (31 degrees Celsius), but thunderstorms are possible.
Relief from the heat and humidity should arrive either Thursday or Friday.

Rather than wait for the heat wave to arrive before sharing these tips with you, I thought it would be a good idea to give them to you ahead of time.
