Metro Detroit weather: Higher heat, humidity on the way

Temperatures drop overnight

DETROIT – We're not as cool as we were on Monday, but not as humid as we'll get on Wednesday, which is a long way of saying we're in a pretty good spot.

On Tuesday night, look for mostly clear skies. We'll drop to 60 degrees in our Metro Zone, with other locations in the 50s.

On Wednesday, humidity will start to build in the afternoon. Highs will be warmer, as well. Expect temperatures to reach the mid-80s.

Thursday will bring back thunderstorm chances. Midday and the afternoon look to be the most likely times to get wet. Humidity will still be high, but highs will only get to the low 80s.

We will dry out from the rain and the humidity on Friday. Temperatures will rise only to the upper 70s.

On Saturday, we’ll get to the low 80s and eventually to the mid-80s by Sunday. Humidity will stay low through the weekend, and we’ll get plenty of sunshine for those three days.

Rain chances, although slight, will return early next week. See where temperatures go from there in our 10-day forecast.
