DETROITGood Tuesday morning!

We finally have a nice reprieve from the consistent storm chances, and have a terrific stretch of summer weather in progress.

Today’s sunrise was at 6:29 a.m.

We are starting our Tuesday off on a very quiet note, with comfy temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s in most areas. We’ll see plentiful sunshine for the day ahead, with highs near 80 degrees. A southwest wind will move at 3 to 7 mph.

Today’s sunset is at 8:50 p.m.

It will be mostly clear and still comfortable Tuesday night, with lows in the low 60s and calm air.

Warm and sunny week ahead

Wednesday through Friday should all feature mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, with highs increasing incrementally each day: low-to-mid 80s on Wednesday, mid 80s on Thursday and mid-to-upper 80s on Friday.

Overnight lows should generally remain in the low to mid 60s each night.

Weekend forecast

We will notice an increase in humidity this weekend and that, of course, makes the atmosphere more unstable.

So, any upper-level disturbance crossing the area (and there will be one or two this weekend), could stir up scattered thunderstorms at least. It’s too early to pin down the exact placement and timing of each disturbance, but it won’t rain the entire weekend.

Highs will reach the mid-to-upper 80s, but added humidity will make it more uncomfortable. And, more importantly for those without air conditioning, overnight lows will only drop into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees, so our sleeping weather is definitely going to take a turn for the worse.
