Scattered rain and storms for Metro Detroit Wednesday

Highs will reach upper 70s

By Brandon Roux - Meteorologist, Segment Reporter/Producer

DETROIT - You can feel a difference in the air out there.

It's getting warmer and more muggy as we head through your Wednesday afternoon. So, temps will be near 80 degrees with partly sunny skies and another chance for hit and miss rain by about 4pm.

We may get a few rumbles of thunder too, but it's another day where most of us will be dry.

More good news for tomorrow, the 4th of July.

The rain for Independence Day will likely hold off until late in the day or overnight into Friday. It will be a mostly cloudy to partly sunny day with a humid 80 degrees or so making your daytime plans and BBQ weather will be dry.

Timing is everything and there is a chance a few fireworks shows may get delayed by a late evening shower. The latest computer model output shows the rain racing in during the overnight making for a stormy Friday morning. Rain may last into the late morning or early afternoon before clearing Friday with low to mid 80s possible if and when we start drying out.

The weekend looks mostly dry but will not be rain free. Saturday looks to be the dryer of the two weekend days with mid 80s and partly cloudy skies. Sunday rain should hold off until the afternoon or evening.
