Cooler Wednesday; Heat and humidity crank up Thursday-Friday

High temperatures today reached the middle to upper 80s, provided by enough afternoon sunshine and a breeze out of the southwest. The temperatures will get cooler tomorrow because of a light breeze off of Lake Huron.

Tomorrow is looking mostly dry. A storm system is organizing in the Upper Plains, through parts of Montana and Wyoming — this will move into our area Thursday, providing a high chance of rain and thunderstorms.

Low temperatures tonight will drop to the lower 60s with partly cloudy skies. A mix of sun and clouds and very low chances of rain are expected tomorrow. High temperatures will reach only the upper 70s with light winds out of the northeast.

Only tomorrow will be the one day until early next week that high temperatures will be cooler than 80 degrees. Afternoon temperatures will rise to the middle 80s on Thursday and lower 90s on Friday. A gradual cooling of high temperatures will take place over the weekend.

Tomorrow will be relatively cool with a high of 78 degrees and some sunshine. Rain will become likely as of midday Thursday and continue until Thursday evening in addition to a risk of thunderstorms. The humidity will climb Thursday and remain very sticky on Friday. Friday could end up dangerously hot, so take proper precautions by staying in the shade, in air conditioned buildings and well hydrated. Relief from the heat will arrive on Sunday.
