Summer-like days with some midweek rain

DETROIT – All of the heat we missed earlier this month was apparently just lagging behind. We have some really summery days just around the corner.

Most of the forecast for this week is dry. There are some chances of rain, however. Both will arrive in the middle of the work week.

On Tuesday we have a very lean attitude during an afternoon shower.

The odds are better on Wednesday, but any wet weather is scattered and short-lived. In other words, we probably won’t see a good soak. With temperatures well into the upper 70s, don’t be surprised if you hear a rumble on Wednesday.

High temperatures until Thursday cruise into the 80s. We’re going to hit the top 80s both Friday and Saturday.

Both days are in close proximity to the records. The record on Friday is 92 degrees. Saturday’s record, which seems reasonably achievable, is 90. The entire route looks dry.

On Sunday we expect more clouds that will keep the temperatures in the mid-80s. Incidentally, the record Sunday is 89 degrees, so that’s not really an option.


Normal highs this week are in the low 70s. The numbers we expect by the end of the week are above our warmest normal high for the whole year, which is 84 degrees in mid-July.

Even these Wednesday and late Sunday rain probabilities don’t promise much measurable moisture. Our drought is likely to worsen.

Monday promises more probable rain chances. These are probably thunderstorms that not everyone will see.
