Metro Detroit weather: Tracking more humidity, storms

Monday highs in mid 70s

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Monday afternoon!

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible this afternoon, but I don’t expect the coverage to be widespread -- more of us probably won’t see a shower or storm than will.

Monday’s highs should only reach the mid (maybe upper) 70s. Northeast winds will shift to the east by later today, moving at 4 to 8 mph.

Today’s sunset is at One After 909 (that’s 9:10 p.m. for you non-Beatles fans).

Clouds will hang tough Monday night as a warm front approaches late at night. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible near the front late at night. A strong storm or two is possible.

Overnight lows will be interesting: Those to the south who have the front edge of the warm, humid air mass cross their area may only make it down to 70 degrees. Meanwhile, those to the north may drop into the low to mid 60s.

Heating up through the week

Once any showers and storms move out early Tuesday morning, we will get a lull before more storms pop up in the afternoon, and some of those storms could be severe. Humid highs will reach the low 80s.

Showers and storms will continue into Tuesday evening, with lows Tuesday night in the upper 60s.

Wednesday will be partly cloudy with just the small chance for a stray pop-up thunderstorm in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Wednesday night will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.

Thursday will be partly cloudy, hot and humid, with thunderstorms developing late in the day ahead of an approaching cold front. If those storms fire up during the hottest part of the day, then severe storms could be possible once again. However, if the storms hold off until Thursday night, then that threat lessens. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely Thursday night, with lows in the low 70s.

Showers and storms are still possible Friday morning, but will hopefully end by afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 80s. It will become partly cloudy Friday night and, more importantly, less humid. Lows will be in the mid 60s.

Weekend forecast

Right now, the upcoming weekend looks terrific, with partly cloudy or mostly sunny skies, and highs in the mid 80s.
