DETROIT – Good Wednesday afternoon!
After some scattered morning showers, and before our severe threat in the afternoon, temps will reach 90-92°F with relentless mugginess.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. today, as heat indices will be in the upper 90s to low 100s -- making it feel like 100°F or warmer when combining heat and humidity. That kind of heat can cause illness, or worse, if we don’t take care of ourselves. So be sure to drink lots of water and take plenty of cool breaks if you’re playing or working outside today.
It won’t be a washout, but some hefty showers and storms should begin to pop up this afternoon ahead of a weak cool front. Storms will have heavy downpours, deadly lightning and gusty winds, so be careful.
Wednesday’s sunset is at 8:18 p.m.
Steamy with rain chances through weekend
Thursday will be very warm and muggy, again, with highs near 90 degrees. We may not have another heat advisory Thursday because of slightly cooler high temps and just a touch less humidity. But be alert: It’s still stifling hot!
A few showers are possible Thursday, but most of the day will be dry around Metro Detroit with only partly sunny skies and 90°F feeling like 95-98°F.
Friday may be the wettest day ahead with a few different waves of chances for showers, starting in the morning and then again in the afternoon and evening. Highs will hold in the low to mid 80.
The weekend is a work in progress around here. We will still be in the neighborhood of 90°F and muggy with a few showers possible in the heat of the afternoon Saturday, and a better chance late Sunday into Monday morning.
