Metro Detroit weather: Hot, humid with scattered storms Thursday evening

Warm, muggy night with lows in the 70s

DETROIT – Happy Independence Day, Motown!

Thursday evening remains hazy, hot and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms. More sweltering, at times stormy, weather Friday. Relieve arrives by the end of the weekend. 

Temperatures will be in the middle and upper 80s at dinnertime. Evening in rain-cooled air, the atmosphere will be so thick with moisture that heat indices will be in the middle and upper 80s. Continue wearing light, loose-fitting clothes and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Also, showers and thunderstorms remain scattered. Anyone, any family with outdoor plans from barbecues to pre-fireworks celebrations must plan to duck indoors immediately if any lightning is seen or any thunder is heard.

Sunset is at 9:13 p.m. ET.


Thursday night will be warm and muggy. Overnight lows will be in the 70s, and it will feel like 80 degrees all night. Make sure your air conditioners are operational and your homes are well ventilated.

Friday will have more of the same; hazy, hot and humid with afternoon showers and thunderstorm. Highs near 90 degrees with heat indices in the mid 90s.

Saturday will be another very warm one wit highs in the upper 80s and showers and storms.

Relief from the high heat and humidity arrives, Sunday. It will be mostly sunny and more comfortable. Highs in the low 80s, so another great day to wash the car and head to the pool.
