Metro Detroit weather: Heat and humidity increase, storms hold off

Tuesday highs to feel like mid 90s or warmer

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Tuesday morning!

Hazy morning sunshine will fill with more cumulus clouds as we heat up to 90°F or warmer in the early afternoon.

We may get through most of our daylight hours on the dry side before shower and storm chances increase. The heat is the bigger story today with more and more humidity pumping in, so it will feel like 95°F or warmer through most of the afternoon and early evening.

Scattered rain showers with isolated thunder and lightning will be more likely after 9 p.m. or 10 p.m.

Today’s sunset is at 8:20 p.m.

Some more storm chances

Wednesday storm chances will likely come a little earlier in the day, which allows for some late day warmth and filtered sun. Expect a few rounds of rain and thunder through the morning drive and lunch hour on Wednesday. Then, it will become partly sunny with highs taking aim at 90°F again.

The heat index will be 90-97°F Tuesday through Thursday, so we should all take it easy when it comes to outdoor activities and listen to our bodies.

Thursday will be warm, but not as stormy, with a few spotty showers in the heat of the afternoon as a cool front moves in. Thursday highs will reach the upper 80s before the cool front moves through, and then we’ll get a little relief from the heat to end the week.

Friday won’t be as warm or muggy, but we will get a few rounds of wet weather in the morning, afternoon and evening -- at least that’s what our current computer model data shows. Friday highs will hang in the mid 80s.

The weekend will bring yet another round of late summer heat and humidity, with temps near 90°F both weekend days and with a few heat induced afternoon storm chances -- stay tuned.
