Metro Detroit weather: From cool to muggy and stormy

Chance of severe thunderstorms

DETROIT – We’re transitioning from unseasonably cool to muggy and stormy, and some of those storms could be severe.

On Wednesday evening, most of the raindrops from West Michigan will dry up before they reach us. But overnight, we'll see more showers (and possibly a rumble of thunder) arrive. This will not be a severe event.  Overnight lows will fall only to the low and mid-60s.

Thursday and Friday will feature thunderstorms at times, and those times are tough to nail down. Right now, it looks like Thursday evening and Friday afternoon will bring the highest possibility of storms. But any of those storms could become severe. We're under a Slight Risk (category 2 of 5) for severe weather both days.

Highs both Thursday and Friday will be in the mid-80s, and we'll be humid both days, too.

Then it's July. Humidity will subside a bit for the weekend, and temperatures will drop a few degrees. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly dry, but there’s a slight chance of a shower or storm on Saturday.

As our four-day holiday weekend continues, high temperatures will remain near normal, in the low to mid-80s. A thunderstorm is possible both Monday and Tuesday for the 4th of July.

Things will heat up beyond that into next weekend.
