DETROITGood Tuesday afternoon!

Highs today will be near 90 degrees, and will feel more like 95 degrees when you add the increasing humidity and warming winds, which will move WSW at 7-15 mph, gusting to 20 mph at times.

This kind of air is a bit unstable, and we cannot rule out a few isolated thunderstorms during the peak heating of today.

Thankfully, there is no guarantee that we’ll have more rain here, as more intense storms stay well south and west of us. Any storms that do form in our region will blow through quickly, though they could produce hail, damaging winds and downpours.

Today’s sunset is at 9:13 p.m.

We should stay hydrated all day Tuesday in the heat, but conditions will become more stable through the evening and overnight. A few isolated showers are possible.

A cold front will be moving through Southeast Michigan, which will slowly help clear out some of the humidity Wednesday.

More rain chances

Morning temps near 70 degrees again, but afternoon highs will only reach about 80F with light winds NNE 5-10mph under partly sunny skies. Another round of showers is most likely during the evening carrying over into early Thursday with some decent and badly needed rain with severe threats staying to our south.

Thursday starts out wet with morning showers lingering for a bit slowing down that morning drive. Skies will become partly sunny into the afternoon with highs only hitting 80 degrees which is about five degrees below our average early July high temps. A few scattered rain and thundershowers are expected to move into Metro Detroit after 2-3 p.m. scattered through the late afternoon and evening.

We will start Friday morning with shower chances, and then we will start to see the mostly cloudy skies become partly cloudy with high temperatures in the lower to maybe middle 80s.

Right now, the weekend forecast looks excellent with mostly sunshine both Saturday and Sunday and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s in a dry and stable environment.
