Metro Detroit weather: Warm, muggy Thursday night

Heat index near 80 overnight

DETROIT – Happy Independence Day, Motown!

It feels like the dog days of summer at night Thursday. Then we have more sweltering, at times stormy, weather Friday. Relief arrives by the end of the weekend. 

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.

Remember to stay cool, hydrated and healthy at the Tigers baseball game Thursday evening at Comerica Park. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. with the Detroit Tigers hosting the Boston Red Sox. Grab a poncho with scattered showers and storms possible.

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.
