DETROIT – All I can say is “wow.” You know when it’s this humid out that anything popping up will produce prolific downpours -- and that it did on Tuesday.

I got 0.79″ of beautiful rain at my house in Farmington Hills, and one of my Twitter followers, Mandy in Canton, got 1.5 inches.

However, other followers had rough news for me. Sue in Manchester only got a trace. “dynaman2” in Milford didn’t get a drop. John said it “poured buckets” in Columbiaville, but “hardly anything” a couple of miles southeast. Those in Wixom and Richmond reportedly didn’t get any rain. Meanwhile, a National Weather Service cooperative weather observer just east of Ypsilanti received nearly two inches of rain! So it was truly a day of “haves and have nots.”

Wednesday’s sunrise was at 5:57 a.m.

As for our Wednesday, it’s another warm and humid start with areas of fog around, but a few showers and storms will once again pop up by early afternoon.

Like Tuesday, some of us won’t get a drop -- so let’s hope that some of those who didn’t get anything Tuesday get some rain today. Sticky highs will once again reach the mid 80s with a light and variable wind.

Today’s sunset is at 9:09 p.m.

Any lingering stray shower or storms this evening will quickly end, leaving us partly cloudy overnight with some fog possible. Lows will be in the upper 60s.

And again, and again

Let’s hope we have some clearing at sunrise Thursday, because the sun here in southeast Michigan will rise partially eclipsed by the moon! I’ve put everything you need to know in a short video on the Local4Casters App.

The rest of Thursday appears to be partly cloudy, and I think most of us will end up with a dry day. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Thursday night will be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 60s.

It will be partly cloudy on Friday with a scattered afternoon shower possible. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Friday night will be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 60s.

Weekend preview

It will be partly cloudy through early to mid-Saturday afternoon, with a scattered shower possible late in the day. Highs will be in the mid 80s. A shower is possible Saturday night, with lows in the mid 60s.

Sunday will be partly cloudy -- a nice summer-like weekend day -- with highs in the mid 80s.
