Heat Advisory and severe storm risk in Metro Detroit: Here's what to expect on Thursday

Stormy, steamy weather in Southeast Michigan

It’s the last steamy day in Metro Detroit, and we have a few concerns before the heat heads out.

Heat sticks around Thursday

Heat Advisory- Wayne, Oakland, Macomb Counties until 6pm.

The heat and humidity are hanging on! We will have a heat index of 100 degrees or warmer at times this afternoon with hazy sunshine. Spotty showers are possible through the mid afternoon with soaking downpours and lightning. But, chances increase late afternoon and evening ahead of a cold front on the way.

Severe storm risk

There is a Marginal Risk for Severe Weather today. We may see an isolated shower or storm before lunch, but a much better chance through the mid afternoon and early evening ahead of a cold front.

Some of these storms later will produce heavy downpours and gusty winds 50-60 mph around some storms which can cause damage.

Keep an eye to the sky later today as the window for stormy weather is mainly 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Friday forecast

We feel the relief moving in overnight and wake up Friday with a much different feel around Metro Detroit. We expect tons of sun, lower humidity and highs in the 70s to near 80 degrees. It will be a bit breezy tomorrow WNW 10-20 mph at times, but it will feel great.

Weekend and next week look-ahead

The weekend is bone dry with highs 80-85 degrees both days and more sun. We may see 90 degrees again Monday but without the high humidity.

Rain chances may return late Tuesday, but more likely Wednesday with scattered showers and storms.
