DETROIT – Here is the Metro Detroit weather forecast update for July 14, 2021 afternoon and evening.

Local forecast

Isolated showers Wednesday

  • As advertised there are a few isolated showers dotting the area Wednesday.
  • Most of us won’t see anything, but those that do -- it should be brief.

Watching storms out West

  • A strong storm system in western Wisconsin is where our attention is on Wednesday. This storm system will have a huge impact on our weather Thursday.
  • This complex of storms is difficult to forecast as there is a lot of question as to how long they’ll survive -- but the consensus is that these storms should weaken before they get into our area. Though the north and west zones can’t be ruled out to see showers/storms very early Thursday.

Rain and storm chances through Saturday

  • Thursday: Aside from that morning chance as mentioned above, the better chance for showers and storms comes later in the afternoon/early evening as a front moves through. Showers and storms are likely, with the biggest threats being flooding damaging winds, and even an isolated tornado or two can’t be ruled out.
  • Friday: The front kind of stalls in the area, keeping a few showers around Friday. Maybe a few rumbles of thunder as well, mainly south.
  • Saturday: A few showers look to be around to start the day, mainly in the south zone, but conditions improve through the day.

Hot and humid

  • Feeling a bit muggy Wednesday afternoon, and it only gets worse Thursday.
  • Thursday we will see highs in the upper 80s, but it will feel more like the middle 90s.
  • Friday the area will be split. Northern half not so bad, southern half more hot and muggy.
  • Dew points hang a little bit this weekend, but it won’t be as bad as Wednesday or Thursday.
