An upper-level ridge of high pressure continues to dominate much of the Midwest with oppressive heat and humidity.
Although a weak cold front will touch the tip of the Mitten on Thursday, it won't make it into Mid-Michigan.
This front will touch-off some storms, which could trickle into our northern counties by afternoon.
In addition, pop-up storms will be possible in the Tri-Cities and Flint during the afternoon.
This first front will wash-out by Friday morning, but a stronger one from the northern Plains will slide into the area by Friday afternoon.
This will bring a chance of severe storms on Friday evening, followed by less-humid and progressively cooler weather over the weekend.
