Rainfall from evening showers and thunderstorms totaled 1 to 3 inches in many locations with local amounts of 4 inches or more. Additional pockets of heavy rainfall will continue this evening and bring over an inch of additional rain to localized spots before the activity ends overnight. It will then take several more hours for flood waters to recede.

Some locations that will experience flooding include… Warren, Ann Arbor, Livonia, Troy, Southfield, Taylor, Novi, Romulus, Ypsilanti, Saline, Grosse Pointe, Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester, Downtown Detroit, Canton, Detroit, Dearborn, Royal Oak and Wyandotte.

Hot, humid weather to last all week

Posted by The Huron Hub on Monday, July 15, 2019

It’s going to be a hot and humid week, especially the latter half.

Heat indices could over 100 degrees on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Friday looks to be the scorcher.

Check out the above graphic from the National Weather Service for more details.

After a steamy Independence Day holiday and then a brief relief from the excessive heat, forecasters are predicting a dangerous heat wave for next week.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Monday that hazardous heat is possible for the second half of July.

“Things look to be warming up across much of the Central and Eastern U.S. as we head into the second half of July,” NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center said.

“A moderate risk of excessive heat is forecast from the Eastern Great Lakes through New England on the 16 and 17 of July.”

According to NOAA, a heat index of 100+ degrees will be possible from Detroit through Boston.

Additonally, there is a slight risk of excessive heat across the Great Lakes from July 16 to 22.

This couid be a potentially dangerous heatwave.


Heat advisory issued Friday; strong storms possible in the evening


Posted by The Huron Hub on July 5, 2019

Just one day after the holiday, summer is really showing it has arrived in full force.

A heat advisory is in effect Friday. Heat index could reach 100 degrees this afternoon.

Here is information from the National Weather Service in Detroit about today’s forecast:

A Heat Advisory is in effect from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. for the greater Detroit metro counties of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb. Peak heat indices will reach 95-100 degrees this afternoon and evening in these areas. These heat indices will lead to hazardous conditions, particularly for those who are elderly and with pre-existing conditions.

In addition to the heat, scattered thunderstorms will be possible today, especially this afternoon and evening. Some thunderstorms may be strong, with torrential downpours, wind gusts in excess of 40 mph, and frequent cloud to ground lightning. The slow storm movement could allow for localized areas to see 1-2 inches of rain, which may lead to poor drainage flooding.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

The Fourth of July is almost here, so let me wish all Huron Hub readers a happy and safe holiday!

The weather on and around Independence Day is important — many will have barbecues, parties, outdoor fun, and other festivities to attend during the next week.

The weather looks pretty hot, steamy, and stormy as we head into the holiday week.

Here is a glance at the forecast:

The weather for the upcoming holiday week looks pretty unstable. Almost everyday has a chance of storms, as well as heat and humidity.


 

 

Forecast: Summer weather is finally here

Good Monday morning, Huron Township.

Let’s start the week off with some good news for summer fans — the weather we all long for is here, and it looks like things are even going to heat up.

Now that summer is official on the calendar, it seems like someone turned a switch from off to on.

After a beautiful weekend, some storms, rain and gloom will stick around on Monday, but then it’s heat and sunshine after that.

Temps could even reach near 90 degrees on Friday.

Of course with heat comes the chance for storms, so a random one can’t be ruled out.

Here is the five day forecast. Have a great week:


Forecast: Thursday’s a rainout, Friday improves, Father’s Day weekend has a chance of storms

The weather has been a bit lousy so far this June.

May wasn’t great either.

Although we’ve had a few 80 degree sunny days here and there, the rain and cooler temps seem to persist every few days.

As we look at the end of the week and into Father’s Day weekend, Mother Nature is looking petty unpredictable.

To sum it up – it’ll rain all day Thursday and be in the 60s.

Friday (the last day of school in the Huron District) looks like sun and some clouds with a high in the mid 70s.

The weekend looks hard to nail down.

Both days have a 50% chance of storms all day long, with some sun mixed in.

We might have to keep our eyes to the sky this weekend while dads everywhere are celebrated.

Here’s the full forecast:
