As our wimpy cold front changes over to a warm front with the next approaching system, we’re going to see another hot and humid day today. We then don’t cool off much tonight, and stay warm and muggy tomorrow. A cold front moving in to end the week will bring some rain chances and a bit of a cool down.

Today we’ll reach the upper 80s to low 90s with a light and variable wind. We’ll have plenty of sun, but also see some clouds and isolated showers and storms this afternoon.

Tonight winds stay light with lows only falling to around 70 degrees. Skies will be mainly clear.

We then start tomorrow with sun before more clouds and scattered showers and storms develop in the afternoon. Rain stays in the forecast for Friday, then spotty showers and storms are possible this weekend.

Highs Thursday will be in the mid 90s, then closer to 90 on Friday before falling back to the 80s for the weekend.

A Heat Advisory is in effect today through tomorrow for Saginaw, Genesee, Lapeer, Livingston, & Oakland counties- we'll feel like the mid 90s to near 100 degrees at times today & Thursday, and not cool down much at night with lows only near 70. Stay hydrated, don't leave the kids or pets in the car, get exercise done in the morning, take breaks in the shade if you must be outside, wear light & loose clothing, and check on those sensitive to the heat.

An Air Quality Alert is in effect for Livingston and Oakland counties today - try not to get gas or use gas powered lawn equipment, and if you’re someone sensitive to pollutants in the air this may be a better afternoon to stay indoors.
