SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - We’re tracking another humid start to the new week. The good news is we get some relief later in the week!

Rain chances will continue into the beginning of the next week. Drier conditions are expected to follow.

Here’s the latest forecast!

Evening & Tonight (Sunday)

Along a slow moving cold front, later Sunday PM into Monday will be the best chance for rain and t-storms within the extended forecast. This scattered chance will hold for this evening and into tonight as well.

With ample amounts of moisture in play, some downpours will have the potential to be moderate to heavy at times and could result in some localized flash flooding. This could give a select few areas reaching well over 1″. Even with the rain chances today, we expect some dry hours in between any development. So, this will not be an all day rain event.

Be sure the drains near and gutters on your house can support proper runoff. Checking in with your sump-pump wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

Lows stay warm in the 60s near 70. Dew points will feel very muggy again; hanging out around 70. Plenty of moisture to work with more showers and t-storms.

Next Week

Monday will have another good chance to experience some appreciable rain and t-storm chances to start the new week. Like Sunday, we expect some dry hours in between any development. So, this will not be an all day rain event.

Behind a passing cold front Monday, less humidity and a “cool down” will be likely into next week.

When all said and done, rainfall amounts around .5 - 1″ will be likely for many by Tuesday morning. Some locally higher amounts within any thunderstorms or heavy downpours will have the chance to reach near 2″.

Tuesday could still have some early lingering clouds with a few showers farther south near Detroit. Wednesday thru late week approaching next weekend is trending drier with more sunshine and less humidity.

Temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s will be likely. Much closer to average for early August.
