Classic late-August weather

Posted: Updated:

Heat and humidity will once again be at the controls across Mid-Michigan today, bringing another afternoon with highs reaching into the middle and upper 80s.

A cold front remains situated to the west of our region as it continues on its slow eastward march.

This will continue to push the hot, sticky air into the region, and will provide fuel for more thunderstorms as we progress into the afternoon.

As with Monday's thunderstorms, the potential will be there for heavy downpours and frequent lightning. Severe weather is not expected, and the storms will be more of the hit-or-miss variety.

Once the cold front passes to our east later this evening and tonight, we will feel a substantial drop in the humidity and overnight lows should slip back into the 50s.

This will leave us with a bright, refreshing slate of weather on Wednesday.
