As I explained in yesterday morning’s article, the smoke from those wildfires in western Canada has spread to the Great Lakes region, and you will certainly notice it again today under the shape of a misty sun and another dark orange sunrise. If it hadn’t been for the smoke, the temperatures yesterday would probably have been close to 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius) but, instead, they stopped in the mid-1980s (30 degrees Celsius). , and this is where we will still be today… but with higher humidity it will make it a little warmer.
A cold front descending from the north will trigger a few scattered thunderstorms… developing first in northern Thumb around 3:00 or 4:00 pm and moving south-east. Thumbs down in Macomb County could actually see a strong to severe storm, while the risk (for both coverage and severity) is lower for the rest of us. The bottom line is that you should keep a close eye on the free Local4Casters weather app’s real-time radar late this afternoon if you have any outdoor plans … and remember, if you have notifications turned on , the app sends you alerts when dangerous weather approaches.
The wind (apart from any storm) will generally blow from the southwest at 7 to 12 mph, moving west, late.
Today’s sunrise is 6:15 a.m., and today’s sunset is 9:04 p.m.
After the scattered showers and thunderstorms in the early evening have subsided, the sky becomes partly cloudy. Cooler, less humid air mass also sets in, allowing temperatures to drop to the low 60s (16 to 17 degrees Celsius) at dawn. Wind northwest 5 to 10 mph.
Wednesday is shaping up to be a splendid summer day, with partly cloudy and smoke-free skies this time around! The humidity will drop, making peaks in the upper 70 degrees (26 degrees Celsius) very pleasant.
Generally clear Wednesday evening, with comfortable lows in the upper 50s (15 degrees Celsius).
Partly cloudy Thursday, with highs near 80 degrees (27 degrees Celsius).
Becoming mostly cloudy Thursday evening, with a chance of scattered showers or thunderstorms. The minimums date back to the mid-1960s (18 degrees Celsius).
Partly cloudy Friday with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the 80s (28 degrees Celsius).
As mentioned yesterday, the forecast for the weekend is not entirely clear at the moment. From what I see in the long range models this morning, it looks like we have a better chance of seeing a downpour or thunderstorm on Saturday than on Sunday. But neither of the two days seems to be a failure. In fact, Sunday could end largely dry. I hope that the models of tomorrow will start to converge towards a solution that will allow me to be more precise for you.
Temperatures appear to be on the rise this weekend, with the mid-80s (29 to 30 degrees Celsius) on Saturday and possibly the upper 80s (31 to 32 degrees Celsius) on Sunday.
