WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Mostly Clear This Morning
Partly to Mostly Sunny Later Today
Chance of a Shower or T-Storm Each Day Wednesday to Next Monday
Gradually Becoming More Humid
TODAY Mostly sunny in the AM partly cloudy in the PM. There is about a 20% chance of a mid-late afternoon shower or storm east of US 131 and north of I-96, but odds favor dry weather during the day there, too. There’s a little better chance of a shower or storm Tuesday night. Highs will be mostly in the low 80s, but once again temps. will hold in the mid 60s at the Lake Michigan shore. Winds will generally be south (southwest at Lake Michigan) at 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY-MONDAY We enter a doldrums, a tropical pattern that’s more typical of early-mid August with very little day-to-day change. It’ll be warm and increasingly humid with a daily chance of a shower or t-storm. While we have to keep a chance of a shower or storm in the forecast each day, not everyone will see rain on a given day, and roughly 90% of the day it will not be raining. It will continue to be cooler during the afternoon at the Lake Michigan shoreline and winds will be light south-southwest most of the time. The odds of a severe storm are not impossible, but the better bet is that severe weather will generally remain to our west and southwest.
