Metro Detroit weather: Overnight storms cause flooding; more dangerous heat, storm chances today

Thursday highs near 90 degrees

Our air will stay very muggy because of the recent rains. Temps are starting in the upper 60s to low 70s as you head out this morning.

DETROIT – Flood advisories have been issued for some Metro Detroit counties due to overnight downpours.

The relentless heat was relieved by Wednesday’s storms, which brought damage to our area.

Will we see another heat advisory today? You might want to think about packing a little extra water and prepare to take it easy out there, especially if you work outdoors.

We have a very good shot at 90°F again Thursday, and the humidity will make it feel like triple-digit heat. This dangerous heat is almost over, but don’t drop your guard: listen to your body and check in on your neighbors.

Skies will become cloudy skies after morning showers, and then will become partly sunny into the early afternoon. Expect more scorching sun and heat in the mid and late afternoon.

An upper level disturbance hanging around the Great Lakes for days will again bring a few heat-induced pop-up showers later Thursday afternoon. We are only in a marginal risk category (the weakest risk) for severe storms at that time.

Thursday’s sunset is at 8:38 p.m.

Shower chances Friday, but otherwise nice weekend

A cold front late Thursday and early Friday will keep Friday shower chances alive. Friday temps will be in the low-to-mid 80s with a touch of humidity. Cooler air coming in will drop our temps late Friday afternoon and evening.

We’ll feel a noticeable change in the air this weekend, and it’s a good one. Make grand plans for this upcoming weekend, because we will have wall to wall sunshine with lows near 60°F and highs near 80°F on both Saturday and Sunday. And it’s the comfortable 80s without much humidity in play at all.

It will slowly warm early next week back into the low-to-mid 80s. It will be dry Monday and most of Tuesday. Computer model data hints at some remnant moisture from Tropical Storm Fred reaching Metro Detroit in the middle of next week. No promises, but we’re hoping for some decent soaking showers without the flooding. We need it, believe it or not.
