DETROIT – Good Monday morning!
Remember to check on family and neighbors in this relentless warm and humid air. It’s warm all over Metro Detroit as we awake to temps in the upper 60s to low 70s with dry conditions and partly cloudy skies. The humidity is obviously high, so patchy fog and haze is likely without much of a breeze.
Today’s sunrise was at 6:35 a.m.
Showers and storms will develop in the heat of our afternoon with even better, and more organized, rain chances later Monday evening. So, expect scattered rain and thundershowers with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s (feeling more like the mid 90s) and a warming wind moving SSE at 5-15 mph, gusting to 23 mph.
Monday’s sunset is at 8:42 p.m.
Scattered showers will become heavier and more widespread later tonight and overnight.
Tuesday will be a big weather day in SE lower Michigan and Southern Ontario, and we need to be on alert.
First, there is a chance that we will wake up to a complex of storms early in the morning, soaking the area. This all depends on how that storm complex develops over Lake Michigan and into SW Michigan overnight and into the early morning.
Then there’s a slight risk for severe storms Tuesday afternoon. We will have a warm front slide through Tuesday morning and midday, with high temps in the upper 80s to near 90°F -- and, again, feeling much warmer with the humidity. A late afternoon and/or early evening cold front will spark stronger storms in the late afternoon and evening in Metro Detroit.
More heat, rain through the week
Scattered showers will be coming and going in the warm and muggy air both Wednesday and Thursday, with highs near 90°F and near triple digit heat indices possible.
The end of the heat wave comes Friday with a cool front, and that front may bring a few midday showers as it moves through Michigan. The good news is that your weekend looks bright and sunny near 80°F both days.
