Partly sunny, humid holiday forecast for metro Detroit

4th of July will hit 80 degrees in SE Michigan

By Brandon Roux - Meteorologist, Segment Reporter/Producer

DETROIT - It will be a mostly cloudy to partly sunny day and a humid 80-85 degrees through this Independence Day afternoon.

Most of your daytime plans and BBQ weather will be dry but the heat and humidity could trigger a few showers and storms.

There's also a stationary front parked on top of us which keeps our SE Michigan skies a bit unstable. Keep an eye to the sky and just plan on widely scattered 4th of July showers.

Timing is everything and there is a slight chance a few fireworks shows may get delayed by a late evening shower especially on the extreme east side of the viewing area. Most of the more widespread rain and thunder will be racing in during the overnight making for a stormy Friday morning. Rain may linger around even into Friday afternoon before we start drying out.

The weekend looks mostly dry but will not be rain free. Saturday storms will likely be early and Sunday rain should hold off until the evening. Both days will be warm and muggy with highs in the low to mid 80s.
