DETROIT – A warm front is lifting through the area bringing a few showers and thunderstorms this evening and possibly a couple more overnight; Not expecting severe weather, but heavy rain could cause some localized street flooding. If you are traveling overnight, just watch for areas of high water, especially on freeways.
Wednesday, we wake up to muggy and mild conditions. Highs will be in the upper 80s during the early afternoon, but with the humidity, it will feel a couple of degrees warmer. As we work our way through lunchtime, we’re likely to see showers and storms develop and move in, some of which could be strong to severe.
Parts of Wayne County and eastern portions of Monroe County look to have the best chance of stronger thunderstorms. New models come in Wednesday morning, giving us a better handle on the timing and location of the strongest storms.
Behind the front, a few light showers remain possible during the day Thursday, but these should be of little impact. The bigger story Thursday is the significant drop in temperatures and humidity. Ahead of the Wednesday storms, we see temperatures in the upper 80s with a more muggy airmass around. Still, by Thursday afternoon, temperatures will be in the lower to middle 60s with much drier air moving in.
Fall officially arrives Thursday at 9:04 p.m.
We’re tracking another chance for rain as we head into the weekend.
