SE Michigan weather: Partly sunny Wednesday, storm threat Thursday

DETROITClouds are rolling in with a few areas of very light drizzle which is fading away, so mainly just cloudy through the morning and mild in the low to mid 60s.

Some suburbs are starting in more comfortable 50s, but we should all warm into the low and possibly mid 80s depending on midday and afternoon sunshine. Partly sunny skies become partly cloudy around Metro Detroit with more clouds to our north.

A slow moving cool front will bring shower and storm chances to the Saginaw Valley and Thumb Region late, late afternoon and evening. Most of us won’t see a drop today but the summer feel is back with 80s and a bit more humidity. Winds are light SE becoming South 5-10 mph.

Severe weather risk Thursday

Thursday will start cloudy leading to scattered rain and thunderstorms moving in mid morning and early afternoon. We should see a few rounds or chances for showers and storms tomorrow and a Marginal Risk for Severe Storms. That’s a very low or weak chance but a chance non the less for one or two storms to produce gusty winds and small hail.

Otherwise, garden variety showers coming and going Thursday into the night and early Friday. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 70s to low 80s in between showers. Keep an eye to the skies although we don’t think there will be much trouble tomorrow from these storms. The best chance will be our South Zone and south into Ohio and Indiana for stronger storms.

Showers will linger for the first half of Friday but conditions improve through the afternoon. Cooler air is coming in, so highs will likely stop in the upper 70s for most. The weekend looks gorgeous with more sun and temps around 80 degrees or warmer both days after comfy nights near 60 degrees.
